Best by date of 10/2019, poured from 750 mL bottle

Look - Very murky burnt red. No light is allowed to shine through. Minimal cherry cream white film of foam on top. Larger bubbles coalescing around the sides with much smaller bubbles on the interior, forming a sort of super continent of foam, with seas of beer, and large, polar outer regions. Subtle, but distinguished. 4 paws.

Smell - Lots of sweet cherries, coupled with a sour funkiness. Classic oaky flanders red aroma. Inviting but somewhat astringent. 4.25 paws.

Taste - Hmm, the oak comes through very strong, too strong in my opinion. The woody character over powers the cherries, and subdues the tartness. Flavors of concord grapes and chocolate are produced. The woodiness along with the chocolate makes for a carob taste. Very slight bitterness. Not unpleasant at all, but not what I was expecting, and varies from the style. 3.75 paws.

Feel - Velvety smooth, almost jammy. For some curious reason it reminds me of the body of a chia seed drink, but obviously without the little frog eggs. Mild carbonic tingling. Rests on your tongue for a bit. 4.5 paws.

Overall - I enjoy this beer quite a bit, and feel it is somewhat underrated. I would like to have seen both a higher level of acidity and sweetness, and the oakiness is a bit overpowering, but there aren't any off-putting off-tastes. The price tag may not be warranted as far as quality goes, however. 4 paws.

Meow beer.

Great tasting beer. But for the price... I won't be buying another one
