poured into a tulip. BB 14-8-2017
Nice Frothy head, dark, garnet, brown.
Smell, grape, vinegar, not very assertive or complex but nice.
Taste is nice and sour, cinnamon, sweet grape-soda.
Sweetness adds to the mouthfeel, medium.
Overall a little too sweet but that's stretching for a complaint.

Very dark, almost prune juice like. Grape on the nose with red wine vinegar. Grape again on the taste with a little vanilla in the background. Welchs grape soda anyone?

This is the classic Flander's Red. It has quite a bit of sweetness with a very clean sour finish. Malt and sour combine to a great complexity. This would have received 5's from me if it were a bit more sour. That is certainly a personal preference of mine.

Bought at Little's Wine and Liquor. Poured into a tulip glass and paired with popcorn and the movie stardust.

A&S: Head is a fizzy light tan and dies immediately. Beer is an extremely lively opaque dark prune colored. Fantastic aroma! Smell consists of red wine, rich cherry (ripe to the point of runnyness), very tart, and with a little funk thrown in. Very potent.

T&M: Taste is a little more subdued in comparison to the smell. Very tart (raspberries), but still with a sweet side. Almost has a kiwi like sourness. Mouthfeel is light and crisp body. I wouldn't considered it refreshing, because it does hang around, but it certainly crisp.

Overall: Very impressed by this amazing beer. Reminds me of Monk's Cafe, only in my opinion a little better. Very much worth the price of 11$ for 750ml.
