look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a murky coppery red, with fine, low foam.

Smell is typical Flanders RED sweet and sour, with cherries and red currants leading the way.

Taste is sweet and sour, with huge oak notes and plenty of cherries. Hints of vanilla, and a sour, very dry finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, crisp and very dry.

Overall, a terrific Flanders Red, with just the right amount of acidity to offset the oak.

On tap at Positive Pie, Montpelier, VT.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-murky dark ruby red color with a cap of a quickly dissolving little white head. No lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of cherry pit and skin, smooth underneath of some caramel malts, light acidity - pleasant and a little bit of grassiness further underneath.
The flavor was moderately sour through the cherry tones. Acidity came back nicely to stifle the maltiness and add a quaint acidic to cherry aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt low but good as the acidity came in as expected - some pucker but behaved nicely along my tongue, non-distracting. ABV felt appropriate. Sour cherry sort of finish.
Overall, nicely done Flanders red ale, well worthy of coming back to.

On tap at One Mile House in NYC. 8oz pour served in a wine glass

A: pours a translucent copper-tone ruby with a thin but creamy white head of short retention. Little lacing to speak of, to style

S: cherry notes front and center with a pleasant sour acidity. I would expect moderate sourness

T: cherry notes up front promptly followed by a pleasant dose of lambic sourness, about a 6 on a scale of least to most sour. The long, sour finish gives way to pleasant oak notes. Just the right balance of sourness that keeps me coming back for more

M: medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Wet finish suits the style well

O: this beer does an excellent job of showcasing its two main elements -- cherry and lambic sourness -- with impressive balance. I would certainly have this again, and it reminds me of the need to revisit Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge!

Draft served in a goblet.
West Flanders "lambic", glad they refer to it more accurately as foederbier. Reddsh orange with bright clarity, spotty lace with random arcs. Acidic aroma, stonefruit and cider vinegar. Puckering with a fleeting acidic fruitiness, a little cidery. Crisp and acidic, light bodied. Good as an apertif, a little overly acidic and one dimensional though. Where's the funk and oak?
