More of a score justification than review:

I developed a love for Flemish Reds after drinking this. I have tried a few different offerings, from Belgium and the American homage brews. The problem is that I drank Jacobins first... so that was my benchmark. As a result, everything else is compared to that one.

This fell short really only on the level of sour (for me..) Every other profile that the Flemish Red Ale is famous for, this one has. The deep red color, the tart aroma, the cherries in the flavor. Excellent.

Cloudy ruby red pour with a beige one-finger head. Aroma is of dark fruit, vinegar and oak wine barrels. Very tart dark fruit flavor upfront. Can taste maraschino cherries, blackberry and light plum. Finishes slightly sweet with a slight tartness that fades fairly quickly.
