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.

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, 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.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - 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.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep dark brown, murky, headless, still. Slightly watery and flat attack. Huge toasty roasty mid-palate with lots of nuts and dried leaves. Slightly acrid resinous finish.

ClarkVV (5858) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Draught pint at Redbones on 10/24/07
A very deeply burnished copper-red body is lightly hazy, with a fairly dense, beige head atop. Moderate retention, light lacing.
Toasted malt and hops! Breadiness rolls through the nose, as straightforward C-hoppiness takes over and piles on lots of stiff citrus. Not particularly varied or interesting, it just seems rather uninspired. Malt apparency is low, other than contributing more dryness to the already dry, acidic nose. Some light caramel and dough notes, but nothing to distract from the heavy citrus dominance. Clean, though, otherwise and no alcohol is noted. Medium strength of aroma.
Fruitiness starts up initially; some cherries, red apples, strawberries but is quickly curtailed by the stronger white grapefruit and orange bitterness. Soft, yeasty texture but with minimal comfort from any real malt suppleness. Grainy and bready on the finish, with hop acids steadily fatiguing the palate. Tastes like dry graham crackers and marmalade by the end. No alcohol or flaws. Too bitter, needs more malt balance/complexity.

Pint Eastside Club Tavern Olympia, WA
A deep darfk amber color with a thin head. Huge deep aroma of spices and malts. Loved he flavor of deep crystal malts and the hops came through quite nicely. This was a rich flavorful beer with a nice sweet finish. Great Beer.

BillKismet (3860) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Ruby-maroon with firm head amounting to a lovely pint. A bit too hoppy for a harvest season ale. Chinook appears in aroma.

Crit (3840) - 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

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.
