a unique beer here, thinking its oak aged, and thinking there has to be cherries in it, although i know next to nothing about it in terms of specifics. its ugly to look at though, milky thick and hazy, slightly pink, but pale for something called a flanders red, and without a lot of head on it or any real carbonation thats visible. it smells outstanding though, plenty of lactic sourness, as well as a fruity pucker that to me smells and tastes like pie cherries without mistake, although i have no clue if there is any real fruit in here or if its a trick of malt and yeast. i think it has some wood too, because its so much more mellow than the classic vinegar harsh flanders red types, more well integrated and that might explain some of the haze as well. its a tricky beer to understand though, and as a flanders red, i think its a poor example of the style. as a fruity sour, its top notch though, really distinct in its yeast character and although it doesnt look real nice, its a delicious beer overall. i wish i lived in a place that distributed thirsty dog beer, i have really enjoyed all of them that i have tried. if you dont have any notion of what this should be like and drink it with an open mind, i think you will really enjoy it...

On tap in a 12 oz snifter. Pours deep amber with little to no head. Little funk smell. Well balanced funk throughout that doesn't linger long. Light bodied with high carbonation.

Pours a deep ruby hue, with an incredibly sour aroma. On the palate, the sourness is brash and rather unpleasant, and a salty aftertaste reminiscent of a gose predominates the finish.
