3.75/5 rDev -1.8%
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

On tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY.
Pours a light red brown into a tulip. No lacing, with no head really forming.
Smells oaky, with some peach, light vinegar, and red wine.
Tastes pretty good. Brown sugar, oak, red wine, peach, pear, woodsy funk, vanilla, slight alcohol.
Medium bodied mouthfeel, very low almost flat carbonation.
An interesting twist on an Old Ale, would continue to try beers from this brewery.

On tap at Torst in Brooklyn. Kicked the keg with my pour. Deep amber brown with massive head. Big Brett aromas with slight malty sweet chocolate notes. Taste is slightly brett..but mostly cocoa with a bit of dried fruit. Its not sweet but you almost expect it to be. Its so smooth its insane. Almost like poured from nitro. ..but being at Torst it was obviously poured at proper whatever...
overall it has great aromas..great look, nice flavor, and great mouthfeel but for some reason I feel like its missing something. But I really do enjoy it. Nice brew.

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.
