look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Very dark red jammy looking. Pours minimal head that dissipates to medium ivory lacing no legs. This is a very dark and dank looking flanders red.

S- Tart acid, deep dark cherry; that flanders red medicinal acidic smell.

T- Background cherry and tart acid. Nothing really steps up to the plate here. Sorda meh

M- Popping carb, somewhat smooth. Has that flanders red bite on your tongue

O- Not my fav style, and not the best of style. I tend to go toward the sweeter flanders reds like Jacobins, but this was pretty good.
