Served from a bottle into a tasting glass. 3 years old (2014 Vintage). Flanders red but flatter (likely due to the age on the bottle?). Touch of balsalmic vinegar. Sour cherry. Hints of dry red wine. Good, but not as complex as some of their other beers, and the mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a dark brown to almost black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that immediately dissipated. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell started off with a bitter to tart to sour citrus. Peel to pulp-like goodness slides in nicely. Slight roasty coffee tries to show its face, but really stays subtle. The taste rails the bitter/tart/sour citrus and really wants to bring in the roastiness of the coffee, but, ya know, it stays really subtle. There is a mostly sour citrus rind-like aftertaste running into a subtle sticky sour finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation is quite low key on this one, playing up the sour citrus to be the hammer on the palate, is it? Eh, somewhat. Overall, good for what it is, I’d most likely have again.
