Farmers Daugher, #7 (Blend) Tasting Session

 Aroma:   A rustic quality close to emptied wine barrels.  Delicate plum tartness, with cherries.

Appearance:  Beautiful radiant amber in color.  Crystal clear clarity.  Soft, thin, long lasting head in a light tan color. 

Flavor:  Starting as dark stonefruit changing into a lactic sourness/tartness.  Big notes of cherry and plum.  Finishing very dry and palatable.  The level of tartness is perfect in my opinion.  Gets musty as it warms up.  No off flavors.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing.  Full body.  Great carbonation levels for style. No astringency. 

Overall Impression:  I love this beer, it is the perfect level of sour and sweet.  If this could be on tap 24/7 it would be.  I also think this beer improves as it warms up. 

Brewing Timeline/Notes:  This is a blend of 5 Flanders Red's.  You can read about the recipe under my original Farmers Daughter post below,
