750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - No head on a clear reddish brown body. Lifeless.

Smell - Chardonnay bomb. Intense barrel character. Vanilla and oak permeate. Caramel. Not really any acidity.

Taste - Much more sour here, but not intense. Strong white wine again. Caramel and vanilla. Follows the nose, but the cherries come out in the end. The back end dries out and leaves diacetyl and white wine.

Mouthfeel - Dry, medium bodied. Easy to drink. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Better than I expected. Out of proportion on many flavors, like the wine barrel.

750 ml C&C bottle, shared by fbc24. Thanks Frank!

A: Semi-hazy reddish/pink colored body with an instantly dissipating white head. Thin retention ring and no true lacing.

S: Cherry, sour notes but nothing over the top, oak, funk and lemon.

T: Softer on the sour front than I expected, but still a good amount there. Nothing too puckering. Plenty of cherry with dominant oak on the back-end which seemed to dry it out quite a bit.

M: A bit under-carbonated. For the style, I would like a touch more carbonation. Dry, as noted.

Really a nice, flavorful cherry-forward Wild Ale. Flanders Red? Eh, not too sure about that.
