Split this beer with my buddy last night. 2005 Edition.

The smell after opening the bottle was strong and fantastic almost like a wine cork doused in apple cider vinegar!

It pours slightly cloudy orangy-red and has a foamy bubbly head.

Tastes very crisp, tart and appley, it has a really nice slightly bubbly carbonation feel. We both agreed this tasted a lot more like a gueze than flemish sour balsemic vinegar taste. It smells so good!

The taste does not linger for long at all, which is a good thing. It is sharp and tart, leaves your mouth watering, and then dissapears right away, almost phantom. I'd love to try this on a hot summer day.

There is a very slight amount of sediment at the bottom of the bottle which is quite bitter, Vitamins!

The only thing that could be improved is the bottle, it does not do the beer justice.

Bomber From Batch #11 2009 (bottle #1087), poured in September, 2010.

My guy at Argonaut turned me onto this little number one night when I came in for a bomber of New Belgium's La Folie. The $20 price-point is a bit staggering ... but well worth it.

L: Murky, Red, Muddish. Little head. Beautiful.

S: Musty, bloody, sour, earthy.

T: At least 6 layers. This beer just goes. Blast of sweet hops and carmel up front, fades in stages through earthiness to a gorgeous sour finish. Lingers ...

F: Perfect for a sour ale.

D: Amazing. Seriously. Amazing.

Batch #12 from 2010, bottle #1775

Nice typical flanders red dark ruby pour with a pillowy, quickly dissipating cream head. Strong lacing throughout the drink. The aroma has a nice tart fruit smell. Some funkiness in there from the yeasts. Lots of fruit in the taste, and very refreshing. Not super tart or sour, but has enough sourness to make this a real nice 'starter' for someone wanting to try the Flanders Red style. The mouthfeel is nice and crisp. A nice moderate bit of dryness.

This is a real nice, very well balanced sour.

Great stuff in an evening of sampling some classic sour ales. This one poured with a nice off white fine head and some lace. Color is a copper amber. Aroma is floral, berry, yeast, malt. Flavor is similar and rich. Body is full and round. Body is outstanding and so is carbonation. Finish is like the flavor. Lots of character yet easy drinking, pleasant. A masterpiece. Perhaps a session for sipping.

2006 Vintage, shared with Bobby8405 during the 2010 NFL Draft.

A - It pours a tannic ruby-chestnut hue, very translucent, with a small amount of oak sediment, and a thin persistent cap of tan foam with slight spotty-streaky lacing.

S - Smells pretty pungently sour, with lots of wood in the nose adding a fruity sweetness.

T - This beer is fantastic; it tastes like a classic Flanders Red. Sweet woody and earthy notes are balanced by bright acetic fruit tones and rounded out by a tart lactic sourness that asserts itself on the finish. Very well-balanced, and at four years old, it tastes like it is in peak condition.

M - Velvety smooth, and medium-light-bodied, with a gentle effervescence.

D - This is a superb brew, especially at this age. I have had fresher samples, two years old, and they are not quite on this level yet.

Pours out a flat ruby dark red with some blackness added in for good measure. Looks like a crystal clear cup of tea.
Mellow fruit and pear and mango.
Smell is sour fruit and grape skin. Alcohol is the next aroma.
Taste is sour apple and red raspberry. Supberb wine flavor with lots of sour oak and touches of cherry.
Mouthfeel is kind of plain. The lack of effervescents make this a slow go. Still a good beer.

THis suckers from Italy. An Italian Flanders Red? Yes indeed! Keep em coming!

Pours a cloudy orange red with some thin off-white lacing into my Church Brew Works tulip glass.

Aroma is sour fruity tartness. Underripe grapes, apples, and classic yeasty flanders acidic funk.

The initial taste is always sour, no matter how many sips I take. To slowly sip it causes the sourness to subside and balance into a nice apple cider sweetness. The finish is sharp and dry, again with fruity crisp apples, grapes, and cherries. Good musty and woody as it warms up.

I had this with some white-wine clam sauce over pasta, and it was utterly complimentary. This brews great stand alone too.

It nails the style, and tastes great. The fact that it's from Italy makes it even more the appealing brew. A real treat!

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #16 vintage 2012 bottle 4549.

A deep garnet red in the glass with a classic dark brown mahogany color, even a dark orange towards the lip of the glass. Not much head, what is is about a light tan one finger head, but it's creamy and the puck always sticks around. Pretty solid.

This is a real interesting nose. Great woody and oak aromatics, splinters and hints of beef jerky. Earthy soil bent. Tart mild malt qualities, and soft vanilla like sweetness. Incredible aroma, hints somewhere between creme brulee and sharp clove like cinnamon. Wow, incredibly impressive and complex. Wonderful stuff.

Palate just sings. Mouthfeel is creamy with a hint of light body and easy coating malts. Minimal tartness but a good mix of astringency lime quality and a chewy strangely pine hop in here somewhere. Malty mix of mild sour cherry quality and light vanilla. Unlike any other Flanders style I've ever had.

This beer needs it's own category. Truly a unique and wonderful creation.

2006 vintage. Perhaps my first Italian beer, this poured a muddy mahogany with a bit of off-white head. It smelled like a blend of cabernet grapes, oak, apple cider and mulled spices, and some citrus hops. It tasted like leathery and oaky malt, tart grape/wine hops, and spicy apple cider. It was slightly thick with a bit of carbonation, and had a lasting tart aftertaste. Overall this was half beer, half wine, and all delicious. It had a great, unique flavor that was intricate, clean and drinkable.
