Best before 3/4/16. The label art of a Renaissance portrait (presumably of the Duchesse) exudes a classic impression from the gitgo.

Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into a Unibroue stemmed flute.

a; Clear reddish copper with a two inch thick foamy offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense patterned lacing.

s; Overripe fruit.

t: Sour fruitjuice which puckers the inside of the mouth in quick order. Slightly sour finish.

m; Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle mixing into the sourness.

o: I have been wary of Flanders Reds as well as Lambics and Saisons (although in the last category I have had a few exceptionally fine ones) because I am generally not a fan of sours and have had a bad "drain pour" experience or two with them. But this is like an elegant strong hard fruit cider. Looks great and tastes healthy while rivetiting your attention on the flavor.
