3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010 Tap. The first Belgian Red that I’ve ever had, this is like your favorite Belgian Golden Ale, except with stronger caramel and malty notes and less hops. Aroma of orange and cinnamon. Tastes of cinnamon and figs with strong carbonation and citrusy hints. A smooth, clean drink that can be quaffed with eagerness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served in a tulip glass, with class (does this also save them on ounces doled out?). Rosy bodied and flowery tasteing, like I stuffed my mouth full of a field of wildflowers. Not exactly what I was expecting. Some grape flavor to the brew as well. I liked it, but probably would have liked the flavor influences combination re-jigged a little differently. Crafted well enough that the high ABV doesn’t hit your brain too hard, however.
