Share This Review

Wild Sour Series Flanders Red Ale is a Belgian-style Flanders Red Ale brewed by DESTIHL Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a can.

Appearance

Pours a crystal-clear ruddy amber topped by a thin head of cream-colored froth that bubbles away almost instantaneously. The reduction leaves behind minimal residue.

Aroma

The aroma is a pleasant blend of tart cherry and sweet malt.

Flavor

The palate follows the nose and opens with a taste of sour cherries before transitioning to a sweet balance of malty caramel. The finish is dry and sour.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is very dry as is typical for the style. It has a medium body with ample effervescence that’s a bit high for the style.

Overall

The Wild Sour Series Flanders Red Ale is a bit too sour for the style and lacks the complexity found in better representatives. Its appearance and feel are slightly off but doesn’t impact the enjoyment of the brew. That aside, this is still a nicely tart and refreshing brew.
