Rodenbach Grand Cru is my go-to Flander's red. It is sour, funky deliciousness in a bottle. The beer is also an unbelievable bargain and can be found for $10-12.

Cherry-red color, small head, which vanishes fast.

Funky, sour-cherry, with hints of malt.

Malt, bread, a lot of cherries, very ripe, full of flavor. Perfect chewy, tart sourness, with a fruity cherry sweetness. Decent complexity, still easy drinkable. Malt underlines the cherries till the end, holding the sourness at bay. Great balance, fruit stays in the foreground the whole time, resulting in a chewy, sour aftertaste.

Poured into a snifter from a 750 ml bottle.

Color is a deep mahogany with a two-finger off-white head. Good retention and lacing. A very good looking beer.
Smell is sour cherries, malt vinegar, with a hint of oak and and earthy mustiness.
Flavor is tart cherry on the palate that is almost puckering, followed by cherry fruit, raisins, and red wine. Finish is dry and lingering with notes of raisins and cherry.
Body is light with lots of fine carbonation.
