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.

Pours clear dark amber with big fizzy off-white head. Yeasty and malty sweet aroma. Some berry feelings as well. Quite spritzy. It has a sweet taste though with caramel and a clear oak-like flavour at the dry end.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle. Aroma of caramel malt and sour dark fruit. Color was ruby tinged brown, with a beige head that was furious and stayed. Definite sour note as the glass approaches the lips. Thin to medium bodied. Near creamy, from moderate carbonation. Not all that sweet, and there is a thrilling sour note running through it. Very pleasant. The malty sweetness is fairly balanced by the sour and light bitter. Not tremendously complex, but much more so than many. It really is nice to have in the mouth. The finish is touch of oak, dark fruit skin, touch of sour, a hint of bitter. Just excellent. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Snifter draft at Taco Mac in Chattanooga. Dark reddish brown color with moderate off-white head that diminished slowly. Complex citrus and spice aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Same complex citrus and spice flavor with a moderate sweet finish. Interesting brew.
