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.

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 itís 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. Iíd 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.

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 Iím just not a fan of the Flanders Red style.

Thanks to Brewfiend for sharing. Pours a nice dirty brown. Nice dark fruit sweetness with a good aoky sour bite. Great light sour bite on the front palate, but the flavor fades quickely. Decent flavor, but nothing spectacular.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brown color with a tiny white head that fades to nothing and small amount of lacing. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, and a little bit of malt. The aroma is a little weak. The taste is a typical brown ale with some of those familiar sour tastes but itís very thin and watery. Itís an ok beer but itís boring.

Bottle. Not bad, mild tingle on the tongue with a nice smooth palate and a sweet/dry finish....overall, a little too thin but still quite an enjoyable beer.
