I've seen this brew forever, never pulled the trigger. Now I'm pissed on why I didn't pull the trigger sooner. Let's get on with the brew! This is damn near perfection in appearance. Nice dark amber on the red side. Nice crown of white tight bubbly head. The aroma is just as intense. First hits the nostrils of acidic tartness that fades into sweet toffee. Dark fruits and vinegar play in the background with a musky grains and subtle chocolate. There's a lot going on in this here aroma! The flavor hits first with some tart cherries that have been coated with brown sugar. The sweetness melds with the vinegar evenly. Some toffee is in the background with toasted nuts. This finishes sweet and dry with mild tartness. The aftertaste is balanced yet complex. The mouthfeel on this beer is just as outstanding as the flavor. Medium-light body with playful carbonation.

Overall: This brew is my introduction to the Flanders Red Ale style. It won't be my last. The flavors on this are well orchestrated for its 7%ABV. No palate fatigue just pure enjoyment. It's not overly vinaigrette nor is it too tart. It's balanced to the max. This brew is Recommended.

Looks great with a reddish brown hue, good clarity and a small white head. Nice aroma with oak and dried cherries. Lots of fruit flavor with both sweet and sour cherries. Good complexity and balance. Excellent beer!
