3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

12th June 2011
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy reddish amber with a thin off white head. The nose, the palate, everything is American oak. Even the texture is woody. Some malty flavor pokes through, but this needs more time.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Clear deep red with a creamy dense white head. Aroma is almost all sweet caramel with just a hint of citrus. Flavor again is dominated by caramel malt, low hop bitterness and no sourness at all. Medium to full body and lots of residual sugar. WTF, Imperial Flanders Red, more like sweet caramel sugar bomb, me no like. There is no way they intended to make this mess.
