Received this in a beer of the month club - I will freely admit I am completely new to drinking beer of this style. The beer is a mixed ale - 75% "young" with 25% aged in oak barrels. The smell was very fruity and floral, almost smelling more like wine than beer. I've tried a ton of stuff from american craft breweries and liked many of them, but I can honestly say I've never had anything like this one from Belgium. The flavor of the beer is a bit tart at first but that quickly fades to more complex flavors of the malt and hops. The finish is clean and refreshing. Really blown away and ready for more true Belgian style beers.

"The Flemish Red Brown Ale, 75% young 25% matured for 2 years".

What could go wrong about that?

Flavor.

It pours nicely although barely any head. Smells a little like dark cherries. Medium carbonation. Fruity but not as much as a lambic. Refreshing. I could have it for brunch, lunch or snack. Not something to taste in detail.

Pours a dark red/brown with a very small head that disappears quickly

For smell it has a very tart smell to it

Taste is tart with a touch of fruit taste to it

It is very lightly carbonated

Overall it's a good beer and a good way to be broken in with sours
