Blairgus (2727) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
23 aug 2013, bottle. Light brown and hazy. Nose is sweet bready malt and faintly tart. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Hmmm. Not the Flanders I was hoping for. To make it "imperial" they added lots of malt and it blinds the balsamic. Some bubblegum, sweet alcohol. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle with Ray, Chris, and Jay. Pours a murky amber with fluffy beige head and decent lace. Nose of caramel, vanilla, horse, oak, alcohol. Medium body, moderately tart, and fairly boozy.

750ml->trappist. Pours a cloudy red-brown with small offwhite head. Aroma is tart, with peach and strawberry, some funky musk. Taste is dramatically different and darker than the aroma; nuts, prunes, malt, charcoal, cardboard. Disappointing.

Cloudy red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Pleasant nose of mild vanilla and fruits. Slightly dry palate. Creamy malt. Mild vanilla oak (is this barrel aged?). Repressed orange and red berry fruits. Finishes creamy. Thought this was an Imperial Red - very nice whatever it is.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
750ml bottle $15. Dark reddish brown color. The smell was oaky and hinted at sourness but was nothing special. The flavor was very oaky, astringent, a little vanilla, not at all what I would expect from a Flanders Red and I was disappointed especially given the price point. I wish I could have bought Zoetzuur instead, much better beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-04-2010 03:55:14

pours a cloudy dark brown with a large light beige head, and great lacing. smell is of rye, some sweetness, a little wild yeast comes through, and musty. taste is smooth, malt, yeast, citrus, hops, and a touch of caramel, ends a little dry.
