I apologize for the 2 quick reviews, but I had these laying around. I had the bottle after draft, but put them in in opposite order.
Poured into a small snifter-like glass at the bar. Poured a reddish brown with an average tan head. Looked like lots of carbonation. Smells of cherry and perhaps tart apple in there.
Taste wasn't overly strong, again that cherry and apple taste with a mix of sweet and tart, but neither overpowering the other.
The beer seemed overly carbonated and felt that way. It was almost like drinking a less sweet cherry cola. I wasn't overly impressed, but it wasn't bad. It was easy drinking, but mainly because there weren't any overpowering flavors.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a small pilsner glass.
A: Dark brown with reds. Very pretty and deep color.
S: Smells of malty notes with hops and some yeast. A nice grape aroma.
T: Primarily a light malt body with a huge citrus and floral top. Prunes, grapes and raisin here. Spicy finish.
M: Smooth and crisp, not bitter and not boozy.
O: A fairly unique beer that is full of unique flavor. A bit too sour and sweet for me, but very different and I'm glad I tried it.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip.
(A)- Pours a murky reddish mahogany color. Some off-white froth and lacing.
(S)- Bright aromas of cherry and raspberry and strawberry with the slightest dry oaky funk to it.
(T)- Slight oaky funk combined with a great dryness throughout. Great slightly tart vinegar and fruit kick and the end.
(M)- A nice carbonation level and balance. A very easy drinking/milder flanders.
(O)- This is a drinking Flanders. One of those you would always have a bottle on hand when you are in the mood for one. Milder, but shows more fruit than sour acidity. While I will say I prefer the grand cru, this is still quite good.
