From the bottle, it pours a reddish brown with a light brown head. Scent is slightly vinegar and fruit. Taste is slightly tart with cherry notes. Nice in the mouth.

Pours a reddish brown with off tan head. Aroma has a slight vinegar over dark fruit. Taste is tart, with cherry, sour cherry notes reminiscent of Dr Pepper. Mouthfeel varies from tart to sweet to prickly

Pours a reddish brown with a thin weak tan head.

Smell is sting on the vinegar aromas, get you expecting a strong tart flavor. Some malt undertones, with a slight tart cherry note.

Taste is not at all what you expect. The strong vinegar aroma is followed by an extremely mild flavor, almost no tartness, all malt and no cherry. Its not bad, just extremely underwhelming given the aromas.

Feel is not very tart at all. Actually its disappointingly not tart. Mild carbonation.

Overall, just ok for flanders red. Its extremely mild and balanced at the expense of the style.

Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that leaves just spots of lacing. Nose is light sour cherry, slightly earthy. Not much there. Flavor is a weak tartness over a brown ale, with a slight cough syrup taste in the back. Mouthfeel is medium, and a bit slick. Overall...kinda lame.

Beer style that tends to provide great products of a great delicacy. But this is too flat, too much like a normal crevesa. Too little gas and subtlety.
