Walking in blind. Never heard of this beer. Color and appearance was consistent with a Flanders, more on the brown rather than red side. Had a slight sweet aspect to the aroma. Mouthfeel was a little thin as was the taste. A little astringent on the front and mid palate. I mean an off astringency, for a Flanders ale. There was not the fuller flavors to fill in the spaces between the sour aspects of the style.

A-Brownish-red with a tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a nice ring of foam

S-Not much going on here at all. Some alcohol is present and what I can only describe as a typical red ale smell. Very weak nose.

T-Like the nose there is not much in the flavor department either. What I can pick out are brown sugar and some dried fruits. Not real sourness or even complexity. It is more malty than hoppy.

M-Not too thick or too thin, average.

D-Easy to drink because there is nearly no flavor.

Overall, not a good beer. I don't know what happened when they brewed this, but I think it is safe to say this is not what was intended.

Bottle. Had this one in the cellar for quite a while and finally had the chance to open it up. Poured into a NB tulip glass a slightly hazed dark copper color with a light tan head. The aroma is malty with orange, slight booze note as well. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet start with a building level of citrus rind note. This is like a hoppy red with too much bitterness in the end. Laces nicely. Not a big fan of this one.
