Had on tap at The Perch in Chandler, AZ on 29 Jun 2014.
A - Color is a dark reddish brown. Slightly hazy. No head at all in the wide goblet it was served in. There was just a tiny ring of off-white bubbles around the edge of the glass, and some light lacing.
S - Complex fruity aroma. I get raspberries, vinegar, red wine, maybe some faint oak. No overt malt or hops aromas.
T - Extremely tart, like lemon juice. Roasted, maybe chocolate note that seems a bit harsh, but no other malt flavors. Light raspberry fruitiness. Dry, tart finish.
M - Thin body. Spritzy carbonation. Some alcohol presence, Mouth puckering tartness.
O - This a clean, refreshing sipper that works well in the summer heat, but I would not call it a Flanders Red. The Sourness and carbonation are too "in your face" and it is the wrong kind of sourness, compared to Belgian originals. Rodenbach and the Duchess feature more acetic, vinegar-like character, not the lemon tartness of a lambic or Berliner weisse that this beer features. Also, I'd expect a much bigger emphasis on malt with some sour complexity, a totally different approach than this beer takes.
