Reviewing this one again since its been a few years and I believe it deserves another shot. This poured out as a vibrant red color with white head on top. Some light thin retention and scattered lacing. The smell of the beer give off some big oaky sour cherry aromas. The taste is tart up front with plenty of sweet & sour cherry flavors there is a bit of oak and vanilla. This beer finishes with a slight malt sweetness. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, smooth and dry in the finish. Overall it's a very good Flanders Red. Really glad to have tried this again. Worth checking out.

(4.0) A: Crystal clear caramel-red colour with a tall and puffy head. Lasting retention and some good lacing.

(4.25) S: Sour cherries, white grape, apricot, grasses, wood, and balsamic vinaigrette. Lots of wonderful aromas that are quite diverse. A subtle sour aroma that comes across rich and smooth.

(3.75) T: Vinaigrette, white grape, slight sour cherry, dark woods, and subdued grasses . There is a long and lingering vinegar taste that sticks around towards the finish and is not enough sour/fruity and more vinegar-like than I would prefer. Nonetheless, quite a flavourful Flemish sour ale.

(3.75) M: Medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Slick and oily. Would prefer a much drier and lighter mouthfeel.

(3.75) D: This is quite good, but a little too vinegar-like and not enough fruity-sour focused for me. Additional dryness would be welcome.

A - Deep red pour. One finger ligth brown head gone to a film fast. Strong carbonation. Minimal spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Tart cherry, sugar. Simple but nice.

T - Sour. Quite sour. Tart cherry, sugar. Cherry and vanilla to finish. Nice. Tart and sour up front, but other flavours shine through. Sweeter after time with some woody notes too.

M - Strong carbonation. Medium body, dry and tart finish with a little cherry note and vanilla.

O/D - Definitely a sour Flemmish Red. Not as much sweetness as you'd expect to balance, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Tasty and complex. Nice one.

I had low expectations for this based on my experience with it on tap. Luckily, it didn’t meet my low expectations, and blew me away. Great complexity. Very fruity up front with some nice toasted oak complexness, tart berries, a hint of damp funk, and a nice finishing dryness with a tartness that lingers. So tasty, so complex, so worth it. Go buy some if you can.
