12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2017 vintage. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep ruby red, light copper/brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy cherries, fruit skin/pits, cranberry, peach, plum, pear, apricot, melon, lemon, lime, red/green apple, currant, red grape/wine, toasted oak, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, oaken vanilla, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, oak barrels, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour/tart/tangy cherries, fruit skin/pits, cranberry, peach, plum, pear, apricot, melon, lemon, lime, red/green apple, currant, red grape/wine, toasted oak, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, oaken vanilla, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and yeast/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy cherries, fruit skin/pits, cranberry, peach, plum, pear, apricot, melon, lemon, lime, red/green apple, currant, red grape/wine, toasted oak, peppercorn, hay, straw, grass, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light leather/funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, oak barrels, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a fantastic malt/tartness, fruit tang, and yeast/oak spiciness balance; with zero cloying, puckering, astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering tartness, fruit tang, and spiciness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and fairly acidic/tangy/tannic mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.5%. Overall this is a fantastic Flanders brown. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of cherries, fruity/funky/acidic/spicy yeast, oak barrels, and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV, with the mellowly acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish. Fantastic soft feel and not overly lactic. Fantastic balance of juicy/jammy cherries, Brett/Bacteria complexity; with great oak presence and nicely rich malt backbone. Mildly sweet with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing imperial style example.
