Notes: This Flanders inspired ale is rich and complex without tipping toward heavy. Toasty Vienna and Munich malts build a layered base that provides a sweet warmth that never feels cloying. Dark cherry leads on the nose with quieter notes of leather, tobacco, and oak. A balanced showing of the sweet & tart characteristics from each fruit is found in the flavor — a juicy burst reminiscent of real maraschino cherry, the refreshing pucker tartness and just-picked sweetness of raspberry, and the tangy punch from the cranberry.

16oz. bottle into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Nose is big cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes. Juicy and seedy with a sharp, woody funk. Really nice and sweet. Beer opens cherry and raspberry. Slightly cheesy in the middle with a big juicy red fruit presence. Brett and some plastic-y notes towards the end with a seediness at the finish. Puckering, sweet tart finish. This is fantastic. Body is light with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively on the palate and goes down puckering with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Very drinkable.

One of the best American Wild Ales I've had in a while. This is awesome!
