Another one of those bottles that's been sitting in my queue for a long time, and finally just decided to grab it. Best by April 05, 2016.

Pours a fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger tan colored head that fades at a med pace, little lacing, very dark molasses colored brown beer with hints of ruby light sneaking through the edges.

Nose brings that nice malt vinegar, tart cherry and acetic acid, soured malts, soured mash, quite sour and acidic, touch of caramel like malt and candi, and hint of barrel wood.

Taste is more of expected flavors, malt vinegar to boot, soured malts and mash flavors, acetic acid but not as much as I thought actually, little molasses and candi lead to a BBQ sauce like flavor, tangy and tart, with a little tart cherry and generic sour fruit, with a decent sweetness and little sticky feel. It has a little dusty oak flavor too. Finish is sticky and a little flemmy, with more acetic acid mild burn, plenty of malt vinegar, and a little bitterness somehow, bit more sweet molasses candy too.

Mouth is med bod, flemmy and little sticky, mild acid burn, decent carb.

Overall pretty good, there are better Flemish beers out there, but this is a pretty good representation of the beer in general, and cheap compared to some others.
