A - Pours a dark burgundy with a thin white head. No lacing.

S - Aroma of dark cherries, vinegar, and grapes.

T - Taste is has a wonderful tartness upfront. Lots of dark cherries and lactobacillus. The finish is more tart cherry and a bit of grainy yeast.

M - Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - This is a damn fine Flanders Red. This has a great nose and straight forward tart flavor. Awesome.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Milky ruby-brown, no head and no lace. Clean. Bottle art is nicely dorkish/anti-sleek. No reportable carbonation.

S: Slight pucker, cherry, trace vinegar in palatable amounts for my American palate (those who enjoy vinegar probably want more.)

T: Great puckering ability, bright cherry, a bit of grain and yeast. Dry.

M: Fluid, no syrup or saccharine qualities that are common in sours. No gritty teeth feeling. Weak but appropriate carbonation.

O: An honest-to-goodness sour beer. Not simple, but purposeful; doesn't spend time on complexity when all you want is sourness and red fruit. I'll be searching for it again.
