as good as a flanders red type can be for me, a generous share i was fortunate to be part of. the color is less red, more copper, not even amber, lighter than its peers, but equally frothy, and with a similarly rich head. the nose is tart cherry, oak, lacto, and a lighter malt bill than i am used to in the style. the main thing i like about it, especially compared to some of the european versions, is that its low on the vinegar side of the sour, its not an acidity bomb, despite being very sour. its lactic and intense, but its not all acid, which allows me to drink a little more of this on a good stomach. dried fruit notes make it more complex than others, oak is heavy, and mouthfeel is very soft despite intense carbonation. elegant example of the style. and my first (if i remember right) beer from tired hands, who carries quite the reputation. impressive stuff, rare apparently, i wouldnt mind getting my hands on another one

500 ml bottle poured into a Tired Hands Teku glass

Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with less than a finger of a white fizzy head that settles to a thin ring. Body is relatively clear (especially for a Tired Hands beer) with some very fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Sour cherry, red wine, oak, slight lactic character, light funk. Overall strength is mild.

Taste: Red wine grape, black currant, dark fruit, lacto, sour cherry, mild barnyard funk comes through in the finish and aftertaste. Sourness is medium/high.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium fine, gentle carbonation. Gentle warming sensation in the chest after the finish.

Overall: Another excellent bottle release from Tired Hands. Not a traditional Belgian Flanders Red, but still a great worth seeking out.
