750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 8/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart cherry, cherry skin, vinegar, oak, clove, hay, straw, musty funk, light leather, caramel, toast, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of tart cherry, earthy/funky yeast, oak, and dark malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of tart cherry, cherry skin, caramel, toast, vinegar, oak, clove, hay, straw, light leather, musty funk, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart cherry, cherry skin, caramel, toast, oak, clove, vinegar, hay, straw, light leather, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of tart/sweet cherry, earthy/funky yeast, oak, and dark malt sweetness; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Flanders red ale. All around good balance and complexity of tart cherry, earthy/funky yeast, oak, and dark malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

From 04/16/14 notes. Big thanks to Nugganooch for sending this out to me as an extra; thanks Dane! 750ml bottle poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.
a - Pours a deep reddish brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of sweet cherries, sour dark fruits, oak, spice, pepper, fruity malts, and light funk. Nice nose, more sweet than sour, but I like it.
t - Tastes of sweet cherries, sweet dark fruits, musty, earthy notes, oak, spice, sour cherries and dark fruits, light funk, and light floral notes. Little musty and a little less sour than the nose, sweet again.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink overall.
o - Overall a nice flanders/kriek style beer. More sweet than sour but lots of cherries, which I love. Worth checking out but not really a big sour.
