Very Good

Notes: This flemish-style red ale pays homage to a little known sect of assassins. Slightly tart with a subtle maltiness this beer is sure to please. Traditionally it was consumed by the jugful.

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color - too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with just a ring of white bubbles around the edge and a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet and sour cherries are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a little sour and has flavors of cherries with hints of oak and sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't as sour compared to other beers in the style and has interesting hints of sweetness.

Very nice Flanders style ale, not really my style but I can appreciate The nice aromas and flavors. Pours a nice rusty honeyed orange color with very minimal head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of dark sweet ripe fruit, malt, some acidic sugars, caramel and maybe a little vanilla. Taste follows the nose. Quite tart and dry. Smooth, mild mouthfeel with decent carbonation. I probably should have let this beer warm up a little bit more to appreciate the flavors.

Appearance - Pours light pinkish orange with thin white head that quickly dissipates no lacing.
Aroma vinegar, tart lemon and a hint of funk
Taste vinegar, tart orange and lemon, malt and a nice oak flavor.
feel is dry and super puckering light
overall a decent beer vinegar overpowers just a bit

Look is somewhat translucent reddish brown. Served with a finger of off white head. Also served in a tulip.

Aroma is like a vinegar tart and something else I can't quite make out.

Taste is tart kinda reminiscent of an apple cider vinegar just not as potent.

Feel is crisp, sharp and dry. Lingers for quite some time.

Overall a solid offering. I'm not really sure what exactly Flemish style is supposed to be so I'm winging it. Tasty nonetheless.
