COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful red-orange beer with rich malty flavors which were “harvested” from an extra long boil in the kettle and balanced with the addition of both Chinook and East Kent Goldings hops. A well balanced, full bodied, malty seasonal ale.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Deep hazy orange-amber beer with a very creamy tan head. Aroma is quite malty and chewy, light molasses, earthiness and caramel sweetness. Flavour is also malt-dominated with a spicy/fruity hop flavour in back. Light resin and a touch of mintiness mingly with lingering bready and caramelly sweetness. Finishes on the sweet side of balanced, but is a very tasty brew nonetheless.

Released....again! On tap at the brewery. Pours a very murky reddish rye color. Sweet malt aroma with hints of earth and citrus hops. A slightly "dirty" taste, some caramel and toffee as well. Pretty full body and no real after taste. Drinkable......

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2004
On tap at Redbones: Cloudy orange/brown with a thin off-white head. Grains, molasses, and some light mellon in the aroma, full bodied with soft carbonation, starts off lighly swet and then gets a bit more sweet. Very drinkable.

Deep copper to l;ight brown in color with a small off-white head.Agressively hopped with an underlying malt character that's almost dominated by the bitterness.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2003
(cask) Very dark brown, reddish shine; dense yellowish head, stable. Woody & caramel notes in the nose, dark malts in evidence. Rich chocolate and winey flavours, bitter malts finish. Rich, full bodied, at the same time as light impression without watery texture. If it were just a little less harsh on the burnt malts palate, I'd rate it quite high.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2003 The Harvest is particularily good this year ('03). Very fresh hoppy character (they grow them right there in the beer garden) and some very nicely incorporated grains to round out the beer perfectly. The bitterness is a bit through the roof sacrificing the flavor some. But still wheaty, hoppy goodness.

herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Very dark in color, strong hoppy aroma, very fierce taste. This is a zinger of an amber. Very full tasting and hoppilicious.

Crit (3339) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2002
01 Version :Deep amber with thin head. Malty nose and taste with a few light finishing hops. Obviously it is much different this year

Dark amber color, with a malty and hoppy aroma and a taste to back it up. The hops however, do overpower the flavor (woohoo). Will re-rate later though due to being sick when I drank it.
