37cl bottle. Gusher. Pours a deep burgundy red, with visible carbonation and a beige head with no retention. Smells of red grapes and wine, dark fruit, prunes, raisins, caramel and quite a bit of oak. Sour and very rich in flavour, with notes of unripe grapes, red currant, gooseberries and a very feint but perfectly integrated caramel background. Very nice.

Batch 4, 11/2014, consumed 1/31/16. Aged room temp, consumed 50F

A: dark brown, opaque red highlights, wispy khaki colored head that quickly dissipates.
S: a little muted at first, may have been a little cold. Once it warmed get a lot of of tart dark fruit- red apple and cherry skins, sour plum, malt, caramel, wood
T: Tart upfront but there balanced by some sweet. Sour dark fruit continues with red apple, sour cherry, slight fig notes. Also some sweet caramel and wood. The flavor was a little muddy when cold, but felt more integrated with bright fruit flavor as it warmed up. Some wood notes towards to the finish.
M: Medium, a little carbonation at first but flat by the end of the glass
O: Decent flanders style / sour brown ale but nothing special. I wish the tart fruit flavors were brighter, but this may be related to aging. Compared to some of the my favorite beers in this style (La Folie, Rodenbach grand cru) the flavor was a little muddy and lacked barrel character.
