look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Hazy amber color. Thin white head which disappears very quickly. Smells of oak spice and sour fruit. Taste is nicely sour, oak, slight spice. Almost watered down which was dissapointing. Nice effervescence, Bright mouthfeel. Overall not my favorite jolly pumpkin offering, not bad but pretty one dimensional for me.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Pours a nice reddish amber. Nice aromas of tart sour cherries. Not overly sour taste of cherries, lambic and red wine. Mouthfeel tart but a bit watery. I do wish it the beer was slightly more bold, but thats a minor complaint. Overall a very good flanders. There are better out there but this one did not disappoint.
