4/5  rDev -3.8%

Tart, with sour apple and cherry flavors emerging after initial taste. The sort of sourness you feel in your jaw. Initial flavor and smell is almost vinegar in its sharpness and astringency.

Very interesting. Pours dark hazel/brown with a tan head that traces the glass. The smell is full of sour fruit like cherries as well as a little vinegar. The taste was heavy sour in the beginning with cherries and raspberry flavors which then mellowed and came back for a heavy finish. Very tasty. Mouthfeel was a tad syrupy but it worked for the style. Very impressive, would highly recommend.

A: Very dark, like a stout almost. Not much a head (on tap).

S: Very sweet cherries and vinegar.

T: Super sweet and some tartness as well. I'd say more on the sweet side. Fruit sugar, cherries and raspberries, blueberries, oak, sweet bread, a tad bit of caramel and coffee.

M: Medium and not much carbonation going on. Nice feel with a smooth flow.

O: I appreciate the complexity in flavor of the beer, but for my tastes, it is overly sweet. I enjoy a more tart flanders red rather than full-bodied sweet flanders. Overall it was a nice drink.
