Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Red Ale

Single, 11.2 fl oz bottle from Michael’s in Marietta, GA, USA. I think that this is an oldish bottle, but no matter, age will probably treat this well.
Poured into the Terrapin snifter, this sits in the glass a still as a mill pond, looking like a slightly reddish coke. Zero head and lace. Looks suspiciously like a LARGE brandy in that glass!
Pretty much a classic example of he style. Strong acidic/vinegar notes along with a thinnish body and an almost completely flat mouthfeel. Taste is less aggressive than the nose would suggest.
As I expected – not a style that does much for me, but this is at least authentic.
