I had this beer on-tap at WABL Belgianfest 2013 in a snifter taster glass.

Appearance: extremely dark for the style, dark brown with a little bit of dark tan foam. Looks rich.

Smell: rich caramel aroma with quite a bit of tartness. Not especially fruity or raspberry-like, but the tartness could possibly be partly attributable to the fruit. I quite like it.

Taste: flavor is less sweet than the aroma, and quite a bit more tart. Caramel sweetness along with a very traditional Flanders red ale character. Acidic and bitey, although again raspberry character is kind of indistinguishable.

Mouthfeel: light body with a relatively light carbonation. There's a little bit of a refreshing effervescence here, but it's not creamy at all. It's a bit too astringent for creaminess.

Overall: tart and refreshing, this beer just rubs me the right way; I'm rating it high on the old drinkability scale. Definitely worth a try if you come across it. (943 characters)

Review from notes. Had on tap at Brouwers during Big Wood. Review from notes.

A: Pours a dark brown, small off white head with nice head retention, reducing to a thin cap on top. Very nice lacing down the sides.

S: Tons of fresh raspberries and strawberries. Slightly tart. The raspberry addition dominates the aroma.

T: Again, a significant amount of raspberry, slightly tannic, less of a typical flanders, probably from the raspberry addition.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, very smooth.

O: Pretty tasty, liked this beer quite a bit. Would be interested to try the regular Stupid Sexy Flanders. (617 characters)
