3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big hops... resin, citrus, berries. Well balanced toffee malts. The taste is tart fruits, resin and citrus hops and toffee malts. A faint bit of earth and an anise-like herbal note that is very mild. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours a slightly hazy copper-brown color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of moderately bitter hops, grapefruit, grainy malt and a bit of pine. The finish is citrusy hops with malt and toffee undertones. Good beer with an ABV that sneaks up on you quickly.

Red pour, off white head. Aroma? All resinous christmas trees and some sweet sticky caramel malts. Big bold and overpowering resin with some malts that get lost in the liquid pine trees.

They needed to not fuck up the distro on this. It is a good beer a few months old. Like a red version of oracle in some ways. But I wanted it fresh.

Did not realize this bottle was at 11%. A presentable strong ale, with a good hop and toast aroma inviting me in. This reddish tinged and very heady and lacey offering had a sooth creamy mouthfeel. The hops are there in abundance, but not overally assertive. They linger on the palate. Sizable malt bill backing a big IBU. Good drinkability, the colder weather was appropriate to savor this one.Flanders Red

Bottle... Clear burnt-orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. I drank this one right after a bottle of Surly Syx. Ironically, it smells, tastes and feels a lot like Syx with less alcohol burn. It’s like Syx’s little brother. Syx’s 260 lbs little brother. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home via trade with DrSilverworm. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy, dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Rich toasty caramel malty, a bit herbal/woody, mild citrus fruity, a bit boozy, dull herbal hoppy aroma. Somewhat spicy, herbal/green hoppy, a bit chewy, slight ethanol, toasty caramel malty, chewy yeasty flavor with a bit more booze on the finish. I imagine this would have been a little better fresh since the hops have faded here and while this is a bit too strong and boozy for my taste, it’s not bad.
