Hi-Wire Brewing Co. Flanders Red

IMG_5307

Here I have Hi-Wire Brewing Co. Flanders Red, 5.8% ABV. I picked up at Good Bottle Co. (125 Remount Rd) which is a blend of old and new beer. This beer is fermented in freshly dumped white wine barrels than in the bottle, three weeks with Saccharomyces, four months with Brettanomyces, ten months with mixed culture and two and a half months of bottle conditioning. This Flanders Red pours a reddish brown color with a two finger beige head that fades into a thin but fluffy cover giving off nice aroma of cherry notes with touches of vanilla oak and some sourness that leads you to a taste of sour cherry with some hints of vanilla and acidic-ness with faint oaked notes in the rear with a nice tart finish of slight cherry and a tart cherry bandy like aftertaste all with a medium mouthfeel. This is an exceptional beer, it definitely gets an A+. Hi-Wire Brewing is doing amazing sour beers and they are something you should try if you into Sours, especially this Flander Red. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
