11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A - Medium sized cap of tan head. Color is brown but has great clarity and a beautiful red glow when held to light. Adequate amount of lacing.

S - Popping bright unripe raspberries. Muddled chocolate malt. Slight hint of funk. Mild grassiness. Hinting some vinegar.

T - Zing! Wow that first sip made me pucker. Extremely tart upfront. Once I adjust, I find those underrippend raspberry flavors. Got some sweetness midway which cleans up near the end giving a crispness to it. The later half is where there is a slight window for other flavors to come through. I get some faint caramel malt and grassy hops. Leaves my mouth with a dry feel but tons of raspberry flavor when I even lick my lips.

M - Tart, medium-light body, medium carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Nice looking beer with a complex nose. I knew there would be a bit of sourness to this but the aroma left me vulnerable to the taste onslaught. After I finish my sip I can still pucker up simply from licking my lips. Fun beer and though I love my sours, this was reaching my threshold.

11.2 fl. oz. bottle into 2011 SAVOR glass. "03" coded on the back of the bottle.

A: certainly on the darker side of most flanders reds. head starts frothy, but quickly diminishes to nothing. sort of expected with the style.

S: definitely an earthy, oak aroma starts things off. a mild cherry pie. aroma is has some sour/acidic qualities as well, but nearly as sour as the palate. nice diversity.

T: starts reasonably acidic and sharp. a lot of cherry and a lot of grape juice. acid dominates the palate for the most part and while enjoyable it definitely takes some attention to work beyond it. mild vanilla in there. finish gets by the sour and starts to dry out.

M: carb is rather mellow with the acidity giving the impression of fizz. light/medium bodied.

D: a good flanders red. good drinkability while having a sizeable amount of sourness. I recommend trying this if given the opportunity.
