Appearance: Hazy red-amber, good head.

Smell: Vanilla, wood-lots.

Taste: Fruity, then tartness. A little bit of citrus. Then lots and lots of wood, tannins. A little bit of vanilla.

Overall: Very interesting beer from Peace Tree. The tart notes were unexpected but blended into the beer quite well. The beer was quite woody--maybe the base beer was not as strong as other barrel-aged beers so the barrel took more of the forefront.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into an unbranded short stemmed tulip glass

Pours a burgundy tinged amber capped by a one and half finger off white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly, hints of lacing hear and there which also disappear fair quickly. Caramel malt, vanilla, light oak accents, and whiskey notes on the nose. Opens with light caramel malt and some apple peel. Plenty of vanilla midpalate. Finishes with oak and very prevalent rye whiskey combined with continued caramel and vanilla notes. Light to light-medium silky, smooth body. Overall, this brew was enjoyable, however it certainly isn't a Flanders Red. There is no discernible tartness to it let alone anything that could be considered sour. The barrel characteristics do have a tendency to overwhelm the base beer. This brew would be better served if the characteristics of the base beer came through a bit more and the contributions of the barrel where better integrated. Perhaps less time barrel-aging might help?

I kept confusing Peace Tree with Millstream, which is a woeful insult, & so avoiding their beers. After being straightened out I figured I'd take a swing at this one...though my swing is horribly rusty. Another time for that, though, 22 oz. bottle split with my wife after an evening of pulled pork & beer with friends.

The pour is dark red with barely enough carbonation to qualify. Smells like an apple just pulled off the tree - skin still on - in other words, almost nothing. I can smell the apples on the ground, but just barely. Borderline missing.

Templeton Red is certainly the first barrel-aged flanders red I've ever...heard of. The taste is an interesting balance. The tartness is muted & gentle, cut by slightly acidic cherry. Vanilla, barrel, bit of wood, potato(e)s (?), with a side of oddness. Pretty flat. Half a bomber will be just fine.

Very strange beer. Hated the first sip, loved the fourth, then settled in between after that. Unique. Pretty good.
