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.

Served from bottle into Westbrook snifter (proper!). Poured a deep ruby reddish brown with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sour, tart, wood, cherry, vinegar, funk, and acetic acid. The flavor was of sweet malt, cream, wood, vinegar, sour, tart, fruit, cherry, and oakiness. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The notes on the nose were quite complex for the style without being overly invasive as some others from this style can tend to be. The flavor was actually quite good with all of the enjoyable notes from the nose only turned up a bit. You definitely know what style this one falls in to upon the first sip. If you don't like sours, avoid this one like your life depends on it. But if you enjoy them, specifically Flanders Reds, get off your ass and find a way to track this one down!

Thanks to mike d for the share at a local morrisons bottle share. Brew poured a deep rich ruby brown nose isnstandard cherry flanders with a bit of a sharpness that creates an off edge of sour egg. Tadte is a bit more well rounded and classic to style and less sharp and funky than the nose suggested. Leaves a soft aftertaste. Ithe bottle wasnt finished at the bottle share so i corked it and took it home and honestly tastes better on the 2nd day! Not a bad brew but far from the best for e style. Nice cool finish.
