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.

750 ml bottle, 2012 vintage, Batch #15, Bottle #1184. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like tart cherries, oak, green apples, funk and vinegar. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like tart cherries, grape juice, dark fruit, oak, green apples and vinegar. Even though it's mostly tart, there's some fruity sweetness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and is well carbonated. I think this is a good, tart, enjoyable brew. Definitely worth a try, I'll have to get another bottle to age and see how it turns out. $16.99 a bottle.

Batch #16. 2012. Bottle #5335. Poured into Duchesse goblets.

Red-brown with red-orange hues. Aerating on the pour, a collection of large bubbles still remain, on the surface, by the hundreds.

Acetic aromas permeate through noted of oak, golden raspberry, currant, lemony tartness, and wet haystacks. Thinly fruity, but nicely funky. I'm excited to find out how sour this might be.

Very oaky and decently sour. Currants, tart raspberry, and moldy lemon. Lots of woodiness, in fact, so much that the base beer might not hold its own in terms of fruitiness or malty sweetness. While I love the wild funky notes typical of American sours, this Flanders Red is missing the cherry balsamic umami of a Rodenbach or the gooey vanilla of a Duchesse. A very light cherry note is at work here, but it's very tart. The thinness of the body really reveals what there is and isn't in this beer. Still damn tasty.

Panil Barrique is a nice Flemish Red that crosses over into American Wild Ale territory. It has great sourness for the style, although it's not as sturdy as you might hope. Finishes cleaner and shorter. Actually, very refreshing.
