1650th Review on BA
Bottle to Bruery Tulip
Split with GuruDel
App- A darker brown color. In the glass it looks like the bottle color. Ive said that a few times with a beer, but this nailed it. The head on this one was a light tan with a good cling and a nice topping to the beer. A good dense center with some ruby edges.
Smell- This was a very nice smelling beer. A bit fresh and could use some time to sit for a bit to become more integrated. The flanders aroma is there with a good bit of tart and acid and then tempered by the bourbon barrels. Smells like a smaller version of Boxers revenge from JK
Taste- I enjoyed this beer while standing around BS'ing with Vince. I was grilling some burgers and the beer hit the spot. This was a nice base flanders with some good acid and tart and a bit of a dryness behind it. The bourbon adds a layer of booze and complexity to it.
Mouth- A solid medium body with a good medium bubbly carbonation with a good bit of bourbon and oak behind it. The dryness comes in and adds a bit of a soft prickly flavor to it.
Drink- Thanks Vince. I wasnt able to make it to SD for this one. Very flavorful barrel aged sour. I would like to sit on a bottle for a while. Hopefully I can find one again.

I don't think of Green Flash as a sour meister, but I am willing to give them a chance to show their skillz. On-tap at Beachwood BBQ, on to the beer:
The color and aroma are on the mark per style. Its color is like crimson with a slight orangish hue. The aroma is pleasant tart with an acidic cherry note to go with the tartness. There's is some slip-off when the beer is tasted, though as it stands is not a bad ale. It's modestly tart and doesn't overwhelm the taste sensors, not over the top nor is it the vibrant Flanders Red as some of the others.
