Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled on 11/4/13.

Pours a murky dark honey brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Reddish deep amber. Nice off white head. Medium collar and some surface wisps.

Smell - Red wine is strong. Acetic and musty. Some caramel way in the back, but it doesn't smell sweet at all.

Taste - It isn't all that sour, but I like it. More caramel and a bucket of red wine. Oak. Fruity sourness.

Mouthfeel - Low sourness. Medium body. Not sweet, but it isn't completely dried out.

Overall - The red wine elevates this a lot. People in my tasting group didn't think it was sour enough, but I thought it was good.

pours a murky brown color with a slight head. smell is typical of a flanders..yeasty cherries..taste remains true with the muted cherry taste . slight sourness. good. not exceptional. medium bodied, mild carbonation.

overall a good flanders. not as good as some Belgium ones. but recommended
