Copper color, pinkish head. Very mellow. Bottle was a 2014 vintage. Oak aging is evident. Very tasty.

Paired with Grass Fed Beef.

On-tap 2/7/2016 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains tart dark fruit, wild Belgian yeast and some malts.

T: The taste starts out with a mild sour burst from flavors of cherries and other dark fruits. Then a thin malt character follows. The hops presence is very mild as expected with this type of beer and there’s a good balance. The after-taste is slightly tart.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Beer is good, but not as the rating average would have it. Aroma is about the best aspect, with a fragrant blend of fruit, vinegar, oak, malt, hint of funk. Flavor's like nose - tartness is only mildly accentuated by a light carbonation; everything else tapers nicely. Body is good. Appearance ok. I could see a very sharp cheddar or a smoked aged gouda with this. Nice brew.

Draft pour to snifter. Deep red color without head or lacing. Smells sour. Thinking it has a bit of acetic acid along with lactic. Sour and woody with a slightly bitter finish. Thin feel and light carbonation.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2010 vintage bottling. Pours hazy deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of tart cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/earthy tartness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, cranberry, red grape, green apple, light cider vinegar, caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, hay, straw, musty funk, light leather, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; with a nice malt/tartness/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and slightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Flanders brown ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth to drink with the light amount of acidity. A very enjoyable offering.
