4.55/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle, poured into a T'ij brewery tulip

Pours with a deep red slightly burgandy body. Some thick ruby highlights supplemented with a tight off white bubbly head with good retention. Some thick patches of lacing up and down the glass.

Smell, thick sweet estery cherries. Sweet caramel and toffee covered dried fruit, some astringent acid along with a huge whack of phenolic undertones. Slightly spicy on the nose, a hint of mixed chiinese spice and a bit of estery alcohol

Taste, thick dry estery soaked cherries. A nice harsh acidic note with a hint of brett character, prickly carbonation with a winey syrupy body and a thick rich sweet port character on the finish. Masses of deep acidic red fruit, cherries and redcurrants soaked in rum along with a heap of lemon juice and sulphuric acid. Deep red wine vinegar profile along with a lasting slightly sugary and syrupy mouthfeel. Thick crisp biscuity body lying behind the initial sour fruit, some lasting acidity on the finish

A legend in the realms of the flanders red. Some sweetness but generally overpowered and knocked into touch by a whack of acidic fresh fruit. The quintessential flanders red, sour, slightly sweet and fruity.... perfect

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

1 pt 9.6 fl oz bottle from FMcDs poured into a tulip.

A - Dark brown with faint amber highlights. Two finger head that moves quickly to a thin lace. Great lace retention through the drink.

S - Cider, vinegar, plums and cherries.

T - Follows the nose, with the addition of some pear and cola. Sour level is moderate.

M - Carbonation is on the moderate/low side, with some mid swig to the finish sharpness to finish semi dry.

O - A pleasant sour. Highly drinkable and recommended. Well made.
