I just bottled up my first Flanders Red and I am very excited about the way it is tasting thus far. It has a very nice acetic acid flavor, similar to Rodenbach, but it isn't as sour as the Rodenbach Grand Cru. There is a giant cherry pie flavor to it and this isn't even the batch that I add cherry juice to. I have another carboy of the exact same beer but I added just under 50 oz of Door County cherry juice to it and it enhanced that cherry pie flavor a little bit. Hopefully my La Folie clone will start to sour up sometime soon here. It's been a year and a half but it has a long way to go still.
