A deep ruby with copper highlights. Head settles to a nice ring almost immediately.

Well-rounded nose. Obvious tart fruit, but almost savoury, earthy, notes as well, almost spicy.

Sour cherries right off the bat. Pretty simple to start things out, manageable sourness and good fruit. More complex in the finish with a touch of spice, kind of cinnamon-like, and a little bit of malt poking through.

Flemish reds have never been my favourite style, but I quite enjoy this one. Clean flavours, with balance where it's needed.

11.2oz bottle into a tulip
Bottle numbers: 14 13, not sure what that means

A: Pour is a very dark mahogany brown that when held to light turns to a very nice ruby red color. 1.5 fingers width of light tan head quickly dissipates down and leaves effectively zero lacing.

S: Tart dark fruits, lactic acidity, oak, sweet dark fruits like cherry, dates, and plum. A hint of cocoa. Awesome.

T: A big puckering sourness is the first thing that hits the palate. Sour fruits like cherry, grape, and apple. There is a big degree of sweet fruit flavors as well. I also get oak and vanilla notes from the barrel. Really excellent.

M/D: Medium body, but feels lighter because of the heavy carbonation. The carbonation and puckering sourness give it a biting quality. Drinkability is very good.

O: Overall, I loved this one. Great sour qualities, but a sweetness to balance it out nicely. Awesome beer. A must try.

A: Pours a clear red body with a thin line of bubbly head. Retention and lacing are poor and minimal.

S: Aroma mixed of cherries, vinegar and other sweet fruits. Vinegar smell is quite strong here.

T: Flavours are forward with sour cherries, very sweet then finishes off with a bitter vinegar taste. The sourness is definitely there with a tad to much vinegar taste.

M: Light bodied with medium-high carbonation. Water like texture with no presence of alcohol. The aftertaste is very sour and vinegary, but does not linger to long.

D: Interesting brew, one of few flemish styles I've had. The cherry sourness is nice, but the vinegar is to strong here.

pours a dark red/brown with a slight white head. big sour cherry aroma on the nose, nice! as you take a sip there is a good initial tartness, but not too sour. very good cherry flavor on this one. really digging this. wow, this might be my favorite flemish red i've ever had. medium bodied with medium carbonation, superb drinkability.

overall the best flemish red ive ever red. loved this one.
