3.75/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
On tap at Church Key. Poured into a small tulip.
Described as a Flanders Red on the menu at Church Key, but listed as an Old Ale in GA. I would agree with the old ale classification as this is nowhere near your typical flanders red. Unfortunately the aroma has much to be desired. 3.75
A – Pours a beautiful, almost iridescent clear garnet. Almost zero head. Good carbonation. 4.5
S – A bit of cough syrup, medicinal. 3
T – My first impression was odd – this beer reminded me of ginger ale – probably because of the flavors combined with the carbonation, but it transitioned very quickly to a mildly sour beer with some residual sweetness. Not as malty as most old ales I have had. 4
MF –Medium light body with a semi-dry finish. 3.75
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev -0.3%

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a murky texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not a whole lot of lacing.
S: A decent aroma of fruit, malt, and a sour quality.
T: Tasted of light fruit, toffee, malt, and the aforementioned sour element. This beer almost tasted like a Belgian sour, but a bit thinner in character. It's sweet in the beginning, but a bit sour in the finish. As I said, it's a little thin, but still tasty.
M: A low level of carbonation with a smooth, but watery finish. Light- to medium-bodied.
O: Kind of an odd beer. It's not entirely like many Old Ales I've tried, but still pretty solid in spite of its flaws.
