3.55/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Chilled bottle poured into a sniffer glass.

Pours with a light tan head that quickly dissipates away rather rapidly leaving behind patchy lacing. Body is a deep ruby blood red when held to the light but takes on a cola appearance when taken away.

The aroma is very well defined and dominated with floral notes. A combination of cherry and raspberry syrup comes up strong over the top of a very faint malt.

Taste is rather subdued and lacks any type of complexity as it is rather difficult to find anything else coming through other than strong notes of sour cherry and soft raison like tannins.

The mouthfeel and structure is quick and shallow. Fresh, fruity and mildly effervescent upfront which balances out with a shot of dark malt that doesn't quit make it and a forgettable finish.

Whilst I enjoyed this beer, I can't help but think that perhaps this example of a Flanders Red Ale was rushed to the market and brewed without the general standard of ingredients or attention to detail found in other offerings from the Flanders Red category.

So perhaps, it is what it is.
