2011 Vintage

Flamboyant Wild Red Ale poured a reddish brown/mahogany hue producing the slightest of heads that dissipated almost immediately to a broken ring of bubbles circling my snifter. The nose is mildly acidic dominated by sour cherries. The taste matches the nose with a stronger acidic [vinegar] flavor of sour and tart cherries that lingers. Medium-bodied with a complex palate that has sharp acidity and dryness. A light almost prickly sensation on the palate is noted. This ale drinks almost wine like.

Flamboyant Wild Red is my first tasting of the Flanders Red Ale style. Well, I am not sure this style is for me. I am not a fan of the acidic, sour and tart flavors that the style is noted for. If you are a fan of the style it is worth a try if you can find it on the shelves.
