3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium reddish brown, hazy. Thin halo of foam leaves slight lace that slumps back into the beer. Fruity nose- cranberry, cherry, fig- plus burnt wood, maple, and talcum powder. Some cellar mustiness asserts itself after a few minutes. Flavor is tart and fruity, blueberries and blackberries, pumpkin pie spice, caramel, and hints of dark breadcrust and black jellybeans. There’s something else... toasted sesame seeds is the closest I can describe it. Although not watery, the mouthfeel is light, and faintly tannic. Pleasant tart aftertaste is a combination of lemon peel, grapeskin, and nectarine.

Interesting that this has such a riot of flavors. Dark fruits, caramel, malt, citrus, raisin, sour grape, etc., not worth writing it all down, not something I want to try again, kind of a mess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had it out of a bottle, poured a brownish head with a light head and a pungent hop sour aroma and a sour finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown - mostly clear - slightly tart aroma - notes of spice, nuts, sour cherry, vanilla and malt. Flavor is lively & tart, without being unpleasantly sour or funky. Sort of remindes me of Duchess de Bourgogne only a little more sweet and mild.

Oak raisin plum. Pours dark with frothy head. Tastes of red wine. Carbonated evident. Complex and unique. Some bitterness. Very good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark reddish brown beer with a medium beige head. The aroma is malty, cherry, dark fruit, a little woody. The flavor is similar to the aroma and a little tart.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
250 ml Bottle: Pours ruby-brown with quite a bit of odd bubble lacing and a thin off-white head. Aroma is very busy and quite interesting; raisins, plums, molasses, oak are all present in heavy amounts. Flavour was decidedly underwhelming based on my post-aroma expectations, this is a carbonation-heavy mild brew with very little flavour when it’s cold. When I allowed it time to warm I could pick out a distinct red wine and fruity sweetness, but it was still a bit of a stretch. I’d hoped for better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours brown with a medium tan head that stays. Aroma is red fruit, wood, a slight sourness, and a nice rich maltiness. Flavor is mildly tart with dark fruits and wood. The finish is a little bit watery but all and all this is a tasty beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very light Belgian. Almost like very weak lemonade minus the lemon. Not really a particularly tasty beer at all. Probably would never order it by itself. Maybe I’m just not a fan of the Flanders Red style.
