3.85/5  rDev +4.9%

On tap at the Map Room, 5.1% ABV.

First beer of the evening, reviewing on a clean palate.

Ruddy cider red, small foamy head, cloudy and opaque body.

Clean tartness in the aroma, not really all that funky. Some mild grain is noticeable too.

Light and spritzy carbonation, a fine compliment to the tart berry flavors and subtle malts. Not alot of oak or woody notes detected. It would be nice to see more of the oak that's present in Flossmoor's De Zuidentrein show up here.

Overall it has a great feel, and drinks like a champ in the summertime. I love it that a local brewer is making this obscure style.

Un-retire this beer. it was on tap at Map Room two weeks ago. brown to red appearence. thin white head. served in a tall wine glass. Smels like mashed cherries, but not in a strong was like in new glarus' belgian red. this was more sour and waterd down smelling. taste was also of sour cherries and alchol. some tartness.. fizziness. overall like watery cherry jucie beer...but in a good way..?

(Served in a narrow-mouthed Pokal)

A- This beer has a warm golden orange body with a creamy off-white head on top.

S- The nice sharp sour note has a faint fruity note of dark cherries. As it warms there is a very light note of toasted malt. There is a very light musty smell that gives some nice character to the sour note.

T- The sharp sour note is not pucker sour but very pleasant. There is a faint blue cheese note that is mild and has a soft bright orange note to the tartness. There is some faint brown malt hints in the background and the finish leaves a soft tartness in your mouth.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slight watery texture which is pleasant.

D- This is really on style and has lots of great wild flavors but they are still mild enough to have several glasses without your mouth turning inside out.

Amber Brown with fluffy white looking headed ale in a not so large tulip.

First whiff is fruity, spicy, and possibly a nutty backbone. First sip, bitter indeed! Sucker punched by extremely tart fruits, a jumble of sour citrus rinds overwhelms. Slight phenol finish, dry. The sourness lasts for ages.

I really can't say I enjoyed this one. I think I can understand what they were going for, but it was pushed way too far and just ends up extremely unbalanced for it. Then again, I'm not a big fan of sour things period.

I came back to FS and found the cask version of this ale. It had been cooling its heels in oak white wine barrels. Matt poured me a sample of his Festival of Barrel-Aged Beers entry, and it was indeed much different. Nicely tart with a green apple aspect and much better Flemish character. A delicious American example of this style.
