Poured cold into a tapered New Glares tapered sour glass.
Look = 4.5 Pours a pale red into a clear dark brown with red highlights and streaming bubbles; 1 finger of off white head that fades to cap; pretty good lace, nice color.
Aroma = 4.25 Intense sour aroma; sweet tart cherries and vinegar; sweet and strong
Taste = 4.25 Intense sour throughout the taste; starts on the tongue and rolls through the mouth; flavor notes include cherry and dark fruits; overall sweet and tart, with hints of mild oak.
Feel = 4.5 Medium bodied with high carbonation; fizzy, good for the style
Drinkability = 4.25 Pretty intense sour but that’s what you’re looking for here
Overall = 4.325 Strong sour level, good flavors, good look; really solid Flemish Red ale.

Fruity dark red look. plum berry taste. Not very bubbly. No head really. Bitter entrance up front. Smooth trail across the pallet. Chalky gross finish. Otherwise very well done.

L: gorgeous red, crystal clear, thin head. S: smells mainly of fruit, very subtle. T: overwhelming fruit, like drinking juice. I didn't get any hints of vanilla, but did taste incredible cherry and stone fruit. Ends off on a bit of a cocoa note, very unusual but yummy. F: very bubbly on the palate, very little after taste, some slickness on the palate towards the end. O: would drink again for sure! Low ABV sour with tons of fruity notes, very good!
