Cloudy red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Pleasant nose of mild vanilla and fruits. Slightly dry palate. Creamy malt. Mild vanilla oak (is this barrel aged?). Repressed orange and red berry fruits. Finishes creamy. Thought this was an Imperial Red - very nice whatever it is.

Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweet caramel, light biscuity, a hint of milky chocolate and raspberries. Fairly vinious and quite bitter with herbal, piney, citric hops bite. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c - but I didn’t note who shipped it. Likely South Bay Drugs. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy 4 finger light tan head. Aroma of cooked caramel through the head, hintof sourfrom the bottle. I hope. Med body/frothy carb. It’s not really very sour - just a hint. Basically it’s a very malty thing with some yeast/spice aspect and enough hop to moderate the malt. Imperial Flanders Red? That’s Dissident in my book. This is a good beer, but not exactly what I’d hoped. The rye aspect makes it fairly interesting. I can imagine a Brett aspect, but it’s pretty submerged.
