look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: cloudy dirty orange/faint red/mild tan body,
big 2 finger khaki pillow head stellar lacing

S: plenty of oak, cherry/green apple, trace of honey

T: sweet cherry, raspberry, solid oak, mild bread,
long sour/tart puckering finish

M: med body, very sticky, bubbly mouth

O: Another fascinatingly delicious brew from
my wife getting me "Rare Beer of the Month Club", what a woman!
Sour lovers should seek this out, interesting choice for
introducing friends to the style. Gotta say, never thought I would
like this style, but it really is growing on me like active Belgian yeast!

PUCKERING PLEASANTRY, TRY SOME!

4.55/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark Reddish amber. Bubbly. Looks like a Flemish Red!

S: Balsamic Vinegar, Ketchup, Cherries, Oak.

T: Perfect vinegary sourness, tart and sour like dark cherries, as it warms it becomes much more vinegary. Oak is apparent throughout the entire experience. Not a lot of oak, but just enough. Most Flanders start to taste like ketchup to me when they warm, this beer is no exception. That's not a bad thing in my opinion though, as I love ketchup.

M: Easy to drink and ample carbonation. Has a soda-like mouth feel.

O: Great beer. Sour, Oaky, delicious.

4.33/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear dark reddish brown in color and has a light amount of carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a thin covering of bubbles coating the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of oak and vinegar are present in the nose along with some notes of cherries. The vinegar becomes more apparent as the beer warms up.
T: There are moderately strong flavors of oaky flavors along with notes of cherries and slight hints of sweetness and sourness. As the beer warms up, more sourness and balsamic vinegar flavors become evident.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer because there are lots of oaky flavors and just enough cherries.
