Hazy reddish orange with minimal head and no retention. It looks flat after the head dies down but a nice vibrant color.

Smells like vinegar and tart cherries.

Really tart. The cherries are obvious and as they state, pays tribute to flanders red. There's a faint sweet offset of brown sugar. Apple cider vinegar. Acidic.

Puckering, tart mouthfeel. Despite the flat appearance there's a pleasant prickly carbonation.

A very nice wild ale. Refreshing and light, yet punishing.

Batch #3

looks really good. pours a large amount of head that settles into a thin layer. fine for a sour. color is golden with orange amber hue. smell is barnyard and horse. some tarty nose feel even. taste is subtle sweet then apple, tart, and then funky. Mouthfeel is light but not a tart crispy finish. The sour hits you more in the nose and face! A excellent beer. Don't know what it cost but I definitely recommend this.
