What a treat to find this wonderful beer at Costco this evening.

The Grand Cru pours a very dark and murky red-brown with a think light tan head that slowly dissipates into a thin frothy top. The smell is sour and tart like sour cherries and rotting pears. There are also elements of yeasty maybe baking bread scents. The taste starts with a punch of tartness and flows into sweet cherry flavors with hints of vanilla and oak in the rich finish. The mouthfeel is on the low end of being medium bodied and very silky and smooth. I love this beer its very nice and as far as on style I think this is the benchmark that I judge all other Flanders Red Ales by.
