Very nice beer. VeryComplex taste. Based on a Flanders red but much less sweet and more complex than most examples. Tastes like a combination of yeast consistent A wild ale. Finishes w small sour. Getting a small vegetal aroma- but it's cold here, may be stronger when it warms up. Very interesting and enjoyable. Would order again.

Lots of Belgian yeast aroma notes. Bubblegum and clove. Flavour is very approachable with a mellow sourness bordering on savoury. Finishes with assertive wood notes

batch 17 from 9/16/11. Delicious, way better than fresh. The flavors really explode on the tongue with this one. I'd never had one aged before, and this was excellent.
