Pours super dark red with a small head. Hints of tart black cherry and vinegar on the nose. Beautiful flavor of black cherries, nice tartness and clean finish. Very easy drinking and quite yummy. Carbonation makes it feel light on the palate. My second from Verhaeghe and have been impressed by both, but this one is better than the Kriek for me.

A: Pours a clear deep reddish brown in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some cola brown highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy/sudsy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a large two finger tall cap in the center of the glass surrounded by a finger thick layer covering the remainder of the surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of tart cherries and some hints of vinegar.
T: Moderate flavors of tart cherries along with lighter flavors of vinegar and oak.
M: Just a hint heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.
O: Very well balanced - not too sweet and not overly tart/sour. Relatively easy to drink and a good beer for novices to the Flanders Red Ale style to try out.
