From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #71 (December 2012):

The sheer rarity of this beer makes us get the giddy goosebumps, 240 bottles … that is it. Just from the first sniff clearly told us they should be walking down this path more often. A few sips in and it started to get a bit mind blowing. Nailing this style is not easy by any means, kudos to Natty Greene’s for taking it on.

STYLE: Flanders Red Ale
ABV: 6.5%
AVAILABILITY: Limited

LOOK: Slightly hazed reddish amber, light but sufficient lacing

SMELL: Noticeable tartness, woody, faint vanilla, sour cherries, brown apples, minty, bread crust

TASTE: Smooth, creamy, tart, baked spiced apple, tart cherries, mouthful of wood, ghost-like vanilla, earthy, nutmeg, chocolate mint, toasted grain, bone dry finish

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours chestnut brown with a frothy ecru head; a few strands and a lot of viscous dots hand around

Smell: Lactic black cherry tones with a hint of caramel underneath

Taste: Lactic black cherry with strawberry and currant tones; a touch of caramel in the base, as well as an earthy aspect; puckery and acetic in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a creamy element; moderate carbonation

Overall: Lacks some of the complexity of the 2012 but still a nice Flanders
