Pours a very clear rusty color with nice ruby tones around the edges. Slightly bubbly. Small off-white head fading quickly leaving minimal lacing down the glass.
Lots of cherry and oak on the notes. Some vinous acidic sourness and a bit of musty funk.
Light tartness up front. Cherries with a little bit of acidity. Nice balance. More oak and vinegar tones come out later creating a tart dry finish with the cherries. Very nice.
A little bit lighter body style than average with good prickly carbonation that enhances the tartness. Finishes pretty dry.
Very pleasant beer for the style. I love good acidity in a Flanders and this one doesn't fall into the trap of being a vinegar bomb like most. The sourness is noticable and pleasant yet restrained.
