On Draft into Snifter

Perfectly blended mix of funkyness and acidity. Nice tart fruit forward taste without being sweet.

Had this on tap in a goblet at The Birch in Norfolk VA. It pours a dark red with a white head that dissipates into great lacing.

Smell is dark fruit with a little funk and a hint of vinegar.

Taste is tart and sour, one of the sourest Flanders I have ever had. But it was great! Taste of sour cherries and grapes with a slight funk and vinegar finish. Not so much sweet as sour.

Good smooth mouth feel with an ending that makes you pucker.

This is a very balanced Flemish red, one of the best I have ever had. Great drinkability and flavor left me craving more. A great find if you can get it!

Look: Pours a ruby red color with a big head.
Smell: Lots of fruit here. Raspberry, cherry, oak.
Taste: Follows the smell. Very bright and fruity, with oaky balance. Sweet and very tart.
Feel: Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation.
Overall: One of my favorite sours!
