Great! In laymans terms its sour like a lemon without the lemon flavor, substituted with grape feel and taste.

Poured from green one pint 9.4 fluid ounce bottle into glass. No bottling date information found.
Reddish brown, clear body. Fizzy head settles to bubbles at ring from carbonation. No lacing.
Aroma of tart and sweet cherry, and yeast funk.
Taste of tart and sweet cherry, and yeast funk. Settles into a woody aftertaste, oakey. Has a carbonated spritz throughout.
Medium mouth feel, just right to match the taste and aroma.
A treat to drink as a Flanders Red Ale. Sweet but not too sweet, and balanced with sour aroma/taste. A positive beer experience.

Pours a clear, vibrant, burgundy colour. Smells like tart red cherries, fresh cherry, notes of lingonberry, and a little sour funk (very brett-y). Tastes tanic, juicy, ripe cherries, sour, oaky, and heavier-bodied than expected. Notes of juicy rose-hips.

Sour beer is not really my thing.

Love this every time I have it. Sour, sweet, tart, vinegar (in a good way), a little fizzy. I like everything it does.
