375ml bottle poured into HF wine glass, thanks Tom (airfoil) for the bottle!

A- Pours a dark mostly opaque slightly brownish purple, a thin white head forms that quickly recedes to a flat top rimmed with bubbles, carbonation seems to be fairly lively but starts to die halfway through the glass.

S- Sharp blueberries, acidic vinegar, malts, a bit of wine and oak.

T- Fairly tart blueberries up front balanced with with a malty flanders red ale presence, finishes with a fairly acidic vinegar presence, light blueberries, and a hint of oak.

M- Tart with a very acidic finish, spritzy carbonation that fades fast after a few sips, fairly dry on the finish.

O- Not bad with a nice unique twist on a traditional Flanders Red throwing in a fruity blueberry presence. The base beer however was fairly average for me with a little bit too much acidity.
