I poured this beautiful lady into a snifter. It was dark brown with ruby red tints at the edges. The head was a decent 2cm and had some staying power. The head also coated the sides of the glass as I swirled it, nice. The aroma was a little sweet and a little funky. The taste was jaw-dropping! I actually thought "wow" as I tasted it. Funky, slightly sour, some tartness, some fruit, lots going on.It really seemed to blossom in my mouth. It tasted like a sour jolly Rancher and also a little like wine. I drank some Jolly Pumpkin beers a week or so ago and it looks like this is what they were shooting for. I really liked this beer and am starting to learn to appreciate some Belgian beers.

Quite possibly the best Flanders Red I have ever had. Pours up a nice brick red colour with a gorgeous off-white head that lasts for ages. Smell is sour fruit and wet wood, but nothing is too assertive. So often in this style the whole sourness thing is way over done, both in the aroma and the taste, as well. Taste is right where I feel it needs to be for the style. Again, sour fruit, some sweetness, and a bit of woodiness, but nothing is over done or too assertive. Mouthfeel is smooth and easy to drink. This is simply a very solid representation of the style, and certainly one to seek out if one is interested in trying this style. Fantastic!
