2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma is clearly metallic. Cloudy dark brown colour, red shine. Small light brown aroma. The flavour is slightly malty with a faint acidity. Tastes OK, but I would have liked it sweeter and more acidic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Clear, reddish brown, with a small beige head. Slightly mild and acidic aroma, with berries and some malty sweetness. The flavor is quite mild too, with berries, sourness and green apples. Thin body and a mellow finish. A lovely, delicate beer that should be enjoyed without too many beers tasted the same night. (060704)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I don’t think I’ve had a ’Flanders Red Ale’ before, but if this beer is representative, I can’t say I like the style. Brown beer with a hint of redness and minimal head. Sour cherry aroma and flavor. Dry acidic finish. Overall, seems fairly one-dimensional and lacking in complexity.
