On tap at the brewery. Beligian notes abound here with the unique twist with the red coloring style which you don’t often see.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear brilliant amber with a thin beige head. Nose was sweet and belgianesque with some spicy yeast notes, toffee, and a wee bit of bread dough with a subtle grass hop twang. Flavor was deep and large, with yeasty spice notes, a little clove, earthy toffee sweetness and a amber-ale sort of earthy grassy hop flavor. Really complex yet drinkable.
