Clocks in with 25 IBUs. From notes at pub:

"This Flanders style brown has time on its side. Aged for 26 months, this blend of 4 Dissident casks, each with a different micro-organism and a small amount of soured black weisse reveals the virtue of patience."

Poured into tulip. Inviting mahogany hue, low head, but lovely, delicate off white lace, really sticky. Decent carbonation for being aged so long.

Really nice aromatics focusing on the sour and lactic funk with some wine-like touches, a nice malt backbone, and sour cherry. Tart cherry, up front on the palate with some astringency coming in. A tad hollow in the mid palate. Comes together nicely on the finish with good acidity, and lovely aged character.

Overall a wonderful aged flanders ale based on the Dissident recipe, slightly tweaked. Worth drinking a tulip or two if you're at the pub.
