750mL (batch 16, bottle 1782, October 2012) into a tulip. Pours a deep brown mahogany w/ a thin off-white head that settles pretty quickly to a foamy collar.

Aroma is nicely tart and oaky with an underlying fruity sweetness.

Taste follows nose. A delicate balance between sweet and sour, neither dominating. Interplay between dry oak, gentle acidity, and dark sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, as balanced as the taste, finishing semi-dry. Thirst-quenching, refreshing, drinkable.

Overall a very good Flanders red ale; my only critique is that it might be a little one-dimensional, but it's still very enjoyable.

A: Pours a translucent ruby red with a small amount of off-white head (assuming you pour aggressively; there's almost none otherwise). If you end up with some head, it retains a little around the edge of the glass, along with some surface film, which leaves spotty but clingy lacing.

S: Pleasant tart sweetness, with a cake-y grainy note. Very nice.

T: Mildly tart, mildly sweet; it is nice, and quite drinkable. It doesn't have any outlandish flavors, but it's definitely in the direction of a sour.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, very good, but maybe not outstanding enough to be excellent. It's fairly subtle, with good but not great depth. Very nice and worth drinking.

Batch #14, 2011 Vintage. Poured into a Teku glass. Deep mahogany with dark pink highlights. Nice two finger head makes this look like a photo shoot. Smells of cherries, apples, and cider vinegar.

The smell follows taste and this is a really, nicely soured ale. Soft edges of oak round out the acidic and sour attack of cherry and berry fruits. A hint of grapes, along with the tannins from skins in contact with oak, comes through; very vinous. Medium-light bodied. Finish leaves a nice funk lingering.

Very good sour, made in Italy! The Italian beer scene has really made its mark and this is one offering that helps support that cause. Next time a wine drinker reaches for a pinot noir to go with a chicken or salmon dish, this could probably be swapped out. I'd also love to try this with sauerbraten.
