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.

On tap at Max's tonight.
The beer pours a reddish brown color with good head retention and lacing. Don't get a whole lot on the nose, but what I get is attractive. I get considerable cherry and strawberry, along with some very light vinegar. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, though it's a bit more sweet and fruity than I expected (a good thing in my book). There's some light sour funk in the finish, but it's very light (thankfully), and helps to balance and counter the sweet fruit pretty nicely. Mouthfeel is no more than medium bodied, and the beer finishes very cleanly and well. Drinkability is quite good, with the alcohol no more than an afterthought.
Very easy to take...
