A slightly heavier and fuller-bodied flanders. A full red ale combined with a crisp lambic.

Appearance - Dark, nutty, slight rouge. Little to no head. Almost looks like Coca Cola in a glass.

Smell - Sour on the nose with hints of citrus and light fruit. Ripe cherries.

Taste - Exactly what I was hoping it would be. Completely refreshing with sour cherry and raspberry. Slight apple finish with a smooth and never overpowering complexion. One of the best flanders I've ever had.

Mouthfeel - Slight carb, sour mouthfeel. Slightly soapy aftertaste taking this score slightly lower.

Overall, high marks. Summer beer for sure, but pleasant enough to be sought out at any time.

- Adam from Tipped Mixology

Consumed May 21st, 2014. Poured into a Bruery tulip.

Beer is a dark caramel brown. Seems murky due to depth of color, but holding to light reveals it is a deep amber with nice clarity. A one-finger light beige head forms which provides nice but short-lived sheeting.

Aroma is sweet and slightly tart cherries. Well, maybe more like cherry pits, since there is a slight woody note as well.

On the tongue, the flavor is mild and only slightly tart. The palate gets pretty much the same treatment as the nose as far as the flavors go.

Moderately lively in the mouth, the restrained but still effervescent mouthfeel on this one is pitch-perfect. Medium-bodied.

Very drinkable and no doubt quite refreshing in the heat; save your session IPAs, pilsners, blondes and shandys for yourself. I'd much rather have one of these or a proper Bavarian hef.
