Bemidji Brewing Fruited Flanders

Here are the notes on the second Bemidji Brewing sour ale we had on tap back in May, released at last from my notebook:

Dark reddish brown coloring, off-beige head, slim, but lasting.

Aroma is pungent and tart from the onset, bursting with cherry notes, then raspberries rush in, followed quickly by blackberries. It's berry-tactic!

In the mouth: big sour, big fruit, big yum. Medium body, long sour finish. Tart is king here, but sweet always stays in play. Love it! Great beer, Bemidji, and thanks, again, for driving these kegs down to us. I'm looking ever more forward to making my own trip up there to see the brewery.
