3.29/5 rDev -21.5%
2008, Batch #10
Cherry brown with etched light tan foam. Smells like stilton cheese, oak, some pie cherry, really not taking much on the nose here personally. As it warms, it kinda reminds me of cherry jolly rancher smell. Flavor is lightly tart with rich acetic character, lightly sweet and a good bit of oak. Thin with light, ticklish carb and a dry finish. Overall the beer is really drinkable, as it warms, it is really inviting as a beverage, makes me wish I were sitting in a lush leather chair at fireside.

A big thanks to Dan (DSlim71) for this very generous extra. Batch 10, 2008 bottle, bottle number 1525.
Appearance – Pours a hazy, dark brown (though slight reddish hues are observed when held up to the light). About a half finger of slight off white head is achieved with a regular pour, which dissipates quickly leaving spotty lacing.
Smell – Heavy cherries and malt, oak, vinegar, lactic acid.
Taste – Immediate reaction is vinegar and the lactic sourness. Thankfully the lactic is a bit more prevalent than the vinegar. Earthy must, oak, cherries, slight funk. Also get a slightly disturbing metallic flavor at the end.
Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, light carbonation, finishes a hint dry.
Overall – One of the better Flanders I’ve had. Sadly, the more I have this style the more I realize I don’t particularly like it. With the beer having heavier funk and oak, and it being less sweet than other Flanders, it makes this an enjoyable beer overall. Glad I was able to try this!
