4.38/5 rDev +1.2%
A - Dull mahogany with bright red ruby highlights in the light. Little to no head.
S - Acidic with a mix of wet oak, tart cherries, sweet dark fruits of plums and dates, balsamic vinaigrette and very light cocoa.
T - Sour cherry, vinous, grapes, raspberry, maybe a touch of plum, oak. Some sweet fruits mix lightly with the tart, sourness.
M - Medium body with lively carbonation. The sour/carbonation combo give it a prickly pucker in the mouth.
D -Fairly sour but still seems approachable for the non experienced sour beer drinker. Very good.

4.25/5 rDev -1.8%
A: pours a slightly hazy reddish-brown with half a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.
S: tart cherries dominate with sweet candy sugar, some acetic notes, and a bit of barnyard funk.
T: tart cherries and raspberries along with other sour fruits dominate with a decent hit of acetic cinegar flavor. There is a nice bit of underlying funk before a tart, dry finish.
M: light body with moderate carbonation, this beer is light, puckeringly tart, and refreshing.
O: a great beer, overall. Super tart and sour but delicious and refreshing.

Bottle purchased from Fleming Place in Topeka, KS. My first Flanders Red. A number 05 was stamped on the back of the 11.2 brown bottle. No clue what that means, though. Poured into a Boulevard tulip.
Appearance: A straight pour revealed a one finger khaki head. I can hear this fizzing away. It quickly dissipated into a thin ring, and eventually nothing. Body was a very nice dark red color. Is this a glass of wine?
Aroma: The first smell revealed sour cherries/plums with a zesty tangyness. A subtle vanilla from the oak. The second a very musty, wet, dirty hay pile in a decaying old barn.
Taste: Intense sour cherries, grapes, and tart plumbs. A brief respite of oakyness. More tart fruits and fruit yougurt tangyness. A bit of mustyness. End with a very pleasant sweet fruitiness. Like orange candies.
Mouthfeel: Drying and crisp. Sticks to the teeth. Lower carbonation works keep the sourness manageable.
Overall: The sourness is intense at first but certainly not acerbic. The tart fruit flavors are very enjoyable especially the dark cherry notes. I think my favorite part of this beer was that gentle, sweet orange note at the end. Overall an enjoyable, complex sour red ale. Personally I would split the bottle.
