Having on draft at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small pink head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark crimson color with no clarity or vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tart raspberries, oak cabernet barrels, and some musty wine notes.

Taste: Same as above. The cabernet flavors is a bit more powerful over the fruit and malts. It adds a little mustiness and the acidic flavors are cool too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, medium to full bodied, acidic, a little dry, and drinkable.

Overall: The cabernet aging on this twist of a Flanders Red is cool stuff. Hope it comes out in a bottle.
