fidelis83 (2095) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Slightly hazy, darkish brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is tart fruit, light roast, toast, toasty and vanilla oak, dark caramel, earth and woody funk. Flavor is tart tree fruit, vinegar, toasty oak, vanilla, cereal, light earthy chocolate roast and nutty notes. Light body off dry leading to crisply dry and nicely acidic feel and fairly strong, spritzy carbonation. Good stuff.

Brown pour with flecks of red. Slightly "sour", but definitely more malt forward that most beers of the same style. Easy drinking. Distinct Belgian yeast flavoring.

Caramel and red fruit aromas. It’s quite dry for a flemish red ale. Quite tart with a short tart final. Lack of complexity.
