2.94/5 rDev -21%
330ml into tulip.
The pour looked promising, a reddish brew with a brown cast. Light brown head that held. But the aroma had a muted sour with a sweet component. The taste followed the aroma. Some sour, but not much. Some cherry, but not much. This gave way to a malty sweet on the finish. Yeast present, but subtle.

3.8/5 rDev +2.2%
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

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.
