Looked and smelled the part of a Flanders Red. But.
Unbelievably thin mouthfeel and tasted of nothing but oak and tequila.

The batch I had did not resembled Flanders red at all from a flavor perspective. Predominant flavor was oak with strong presence of tannins. Oak and tannins overpowered any other subtle flavors. No stone fruits detected. No tartness or sourness from bacteria, no Brett character. Just very strong oak and tannins. Beer just missed the mark for a Flanders red and did not really fit the style. At a local bottle shop, a 22oz bottle cost $18.50. I would've been better off getting a 22oz bottle of magic hat # 9 for $4

On draft at Capone's.

The beer is autumn orange and mildly hazy with a thin, white head. The aroma brings malt, various spice, yeast. Immediately lacking the depth and intrigue found in the scent of a fine Flanders red. Belgian yeast and citrus notes, with a sweetness reminiscent of apple huice. Malty with a touch of funky citrus. Eh, this was mediocre. Not even close to Rodenbach, or other notables in the genre.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Served in a snifter, a reddish amber liquid with a thin ringlet of bubbles on top; no lacing to speak of. Aroma was a bit muted, light notes of grapes and oak. The taste was a bit light as well, white and red grapes, apple skins, oak, with just a light twinge of tartness. The body was on the light end of medium, and seemed pretty thinned out overall. It was definitely drinkable, but not really exemplary of the style.
