Poured from cold 11.2 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance - Thin head, deep amber red color. Very clear.
Smell - Not very strong. Somewhat fruity and sour.
Taste - Sweet and acidic.
Mouthfeel - Medium thickness and above average carbonation.
Overall - Very tasty. An above-average Flemmish Red Ale, but not the best either.

3.8/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours an auburn color (not what I was expecting for a Flanders Red) with a thick head that leaves an impressive amount of lacing

Smell: Cherry pie, oak and must

Taste: A sweet encounter on the front of the tongue with the cherry pie flavors; as the liquid passes over the sour receptors, the tartness and oak flavors build but in the finish, it is the sweetness that lingers

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a somewhat puckery factor

Overall: An easy drinker but lacks funk and tartness when compared to some of the better examples of the style

4.49/5  rDev +20.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a nice, dark, deep reddish brown with red tinting at the edges of the glass and a thin off-white head. Quite nice, very appealing and pleasant to look at. Scents of Balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, overripe fruit, sour funk and faint caramel malt. A good sour aroma, quite appealing. Flavor begins with sour and funky notes alongside sweet, moscato-like white grape, moving into some indeterminate fruity flavors, sour apple, caramel and earthy mustiness. The finish is tart, with some sweetness. An excellent flavor profile that blends sour and sweet into a lovely whole. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky, semi-drying feel. Quite nice. Overall this was a great Flanders Red that has an excellent aroma, flavor and mouthfeel. Highly recommended.

Serving type: on-tap
