A - Poured a deep reddish brown colour with a thin layer of dirty cream coloured head.

S - Lots of oak and cherry notes in the nose. Some caramel and grape aromas are also present.

T - A massive oak presence with tart cherries, grape, caramel and even a bit of a toasted wood presence. Tart, but not sour. The ABV provides the perfect compliment to the natural sweetness.

M - Medium body. Dry. Moderate carbonation.

Pour is dark copper brown with a thin tight tan head. Nose has a hint of dark malt base with some sawdust and sour cherry. Taste is similar, a little watery and less bright than the nose. There is a stronger dark malt component than a normal Flanders red, fairly sour with notes of tart sour cherry but a bit thin in flavor through the finish. Very strong carbonation on a lighter body. No glaring flaws, not acetic at all but not bright and a bit watery.
