First time for this beer. I want disappointed. The pour into a goblet-style vessel was a little flat, just a thin light reddish brown head. The aroma was, however quite nice, a light acid, more fruit...probably cherry or berry:
Mouthfeel was perfect. Effervescent, sharp enough, but not puckering. Taste just great. Perfect balance of acid, richness of raisins and wine.
It's hard to believe I hadn't heard of this fine beer before...although I'm still fairly new to the style.

Glass: Ommegang Chalice
Pours a very wine-esque ruby red w/ brown mahoghany highlights, w/ a 1/2 finger white head that produces nice sticky lacing. Aromas of cherry, oak, Luden's cherry cough drops(medicinal), and funk. Taste starts off w/ face distorting tart/sour cherry and apple, which leads into oak and a touch of cocoa, and finishes w/ a funky twang. Medium bodied and lush. Great depth of flavors and finishes pretty dry.
Overall, this brew blew me away! Hands down the best Flanders Red I have ever had. Squashes Oude Tart! Also, just found out this brewery helped brew Ommegang Rouge, no wonder it is rated so high. Seek this brew out, it is the real deal.
