cool but inconsistent beer, different every time i try it, and this latest batch may have been the least impressive of the lot. its murky amber in color, almost flat from the tap, with a foot smelling funk that shows weird sour mashing, a little off, and an overall weirdness to it. definitely a wild ale, but just so much funk, gym socky and sweaty and unsettling a little in the stomach. i remember it differently though, as an excellent flanders red, vinegary and fuller bodied with a lot of rich caramel grain character. it has always been like that, but the funk seems way higher than the lacto part now, and like some of those spontaneous overpriced italian wilds, this one is unfamiliar in a way im not sure i like. backyard bucket type beer, maybe batch variance is intentional, but i liked previous editions far more than this latest brew.

Dark gold color with a thin and quick to vanish head. I like my Flemish Reds more red. Smells more like strawberries rather than cherries. There's a nice wet straw rustic tone that carries from the aroma into the flavor. Flavor is a again more strawberries than cherry. Not nearly tart enough.
