500 ml bottle poured into a Tired Hands Teku glass

Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with less than a finger of a white fizzy head that settles to a thin ring. Body is relatively clear (especially for a Tired Hands beer) with some very fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Sour cherry, red wine, oak, slight lactic character, light funk. Overall strength is mild.

Taste: Red wine grape, black currant, dark fruit, lacto, sour cherry, mild barnyard funk comes through in the finish and aftertaste. Sourness is medium/high.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium fine, gentle carbonation. Gentle warming sensation in the chest after the finish.

Overall: Another excellent bottle release from Tired Hands. Not a traditional Belgian Flanders Red, but still a great worth seeking out.

Nice presentation with the red wax and plain, subtle label.

A - Pours a red mahogany body with brown hues in it and a one finger fizzy eggshell head.

S - Oak notes and sour cherries collide with a barnyard funky aroma. It's a bit acidic as well.

T - Definite sour notes up front of cherries and lemon tartness. It transforms into oak and funk in the middle and ends in an acidic tone.

M - Light bodied and medium to high carbonation. Has a crisp and dry body.

O - A complex oak aged flanders that is very well balanced and worth the price of admission.

Bottle shared by Justin at Curran's tasting.

Pours a dark reddish brown, with a small filmy head, about a quarter inch or less, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like cherry, oak, barnyard funk.

The taste is similar. Mildly tart and funky, and only the slightest bit lactic, keeping it fairly drinkable. Some cherry and sour dark fruits, a bit vinous, and lots of oak, with some good wood bitterness. Lots of great funk in here that stays fairly subtle, doesn't knock you over the head.

Light bodied, very drinkable. There is a medium amount of carbonation.

First beer from the ever hyped Tired Hands, I really enjoyed it.
