Poured from a 300 ml bottle into a goblet. Dated 04 14 printed on the label.

Pours a beautiful ruby red with a 2-2.5 inch head that holds strong
For about 40 seconds. Head retention is surprising for a beer of this style. Very minimal lacing present around the glass.

Smells of sour cherries, lacto, and Belgian yeast. Pretty serious sour nose on this brew! Makes my mouth water just smelling it.

Tastes tart up front with a cherry finish. Lots of lacto present all throughout with an awesome cherry profile. Need the best Flemish reds I have ever tasted.

Slick on the tongue with a sweetness that turns to tart very quickly. Sweetness is detected when you lick your lips. Minimal carbonation is present but just a bit of prickliness on the tongue. Quite pleasant.

Overall one of the top 10 Flemish reds I've tasted. With an awesome nose and even better flavor, this brew is super delicious and super drinkable at 5.5%. Definitely one that you need to pick up and try!

Cheers!
