Poured from a bottle into a small pilsner glass.

A: Dark brown with reds. Very pretty and deep color.

S: Smells of malty notes with hops and some yeast. A nice grape aroma.

T: Primarily a light malt body with a huge citrus and floral top. Prunes, grapes and raisin here. Spicy finish.

M: Smooth and crisp, not bitter and not boozy.

O: A fairly unique beer that is full of unique flavor. A bit too sour and sweet for me, but very different and I'm glad I tried it.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a murky reddish mahogany color. Some off-white froth and lacing.

(S)- Bright aromas of cherry and raspberry and strawberry with the slightest dry oaky funk to it.

(T)- Slight oaky funk combined with a great dryness throughout. Great slightly tart vinegar and fruit kick and the end.

(M)- A nice carbonation level and balance. A very easy drinking/milder flanders.

(O)- This is a drinking Flanders. One of those you would always have a bottle on hand when you are in the mood for one. Milder, but shows more fruit than sour acidity. While I will say I prefer the grand cru, this is still quite good.
