3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub, Grand Rapids. Medium translucent red body, thin clumping off-white head. Light toasty, cerealy, fruity nose. The body starts thin and tart with sharp grain and tannic fruitskin notes. Some nuttiness, some grape. Gets a bit chewier and breadier with warmth. Lots of house character. Worth spending some time with to get better acquainted.

On tap at brewery. All French ingredients (yeast, hops, malt). Pours an amber/red. Notes of toastier malts, bready yeast. Well balanced, not sweet. As beer warmed, the French hop they used seem to give a copper-tasting character. Bright, champagne-like body.
