Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Redlight. Warm, hazy copper red amber glows in goblet. Cinnamon, clove, cherry, juicy and spicy aroma. Higher carbonation than the Great Lakes, which I had side by side. Flavors are similar to the aromas with lots of cinnamon and clove. Cherry too. Good holiday flavors.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Redlight Redlight
Reddish-amber and cloudy. Sweet cherry, light spic and some nice malts. Smooth, spicy with lots of malt. Well-balanced and rich. It gets a little thin at the end but overall I like the sense of balance this brew has.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2009
On draft at Redlight. Pours a cloudy strawberry soda color with a thin and whispy white head. Strong smell of cherry syrup and grain. Taste is somewhat like cherry cough syrup with vanilla and some winter spices like cinnamon and clove. Quite tart, too, with a thin mouthfeel.

bconley (352) - Fern Park, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2009
On tap...Redlight. A cherry reddish brown body. Sweet and caramelly malts. Hops come through. Liked the cinnamon. Nice spice. Alcohol came through more than I thought. Wouldn’t mind this one again.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Draft… Hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is big on gingerbread. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. Sweet, malty, spicy flavor… gingerbread-like. Spicy, sweet, mildly bitter finish.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2008
On tap @ Redlight. Ruddy medium-brown color, slightly cloudy white head. Balanced grain and cinnamon, clove spice notes, slight sweetness, a lot of cinnamon in particular. More sweet taste, lighter cinnamon, mild finish. Decent overall, actually had some farmhouse character present.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a red, clear with a thinnish tan head, slightly fuzzy. Nose is slightly tart, yeasty, cloves, cinnamon, toasted malt and cherries. Flavor is a touch tart, cherries, caramel, toasty with cloves and other spices coming through toward the end. A little drying, tart, med-to-low carbonation. A good spicy, slightly cherry dubbel.

dchmela (2640) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a deep copper red with a thin white head. Fruity cherry, tropical malty candy aroma. Little cough syrup, by has a dryness. Nice cherry, fruity slightly tart flavor with a good malt balance. Clean slightly sweet finish. Good brew from a good local brewer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a hazy reddish-copper color, with a small, foamy, off-white head. Settling quickly to a wispy film with a prominent edge, the cap leaves minimal, spotty traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma shows light candy sugar, maraschino cherries, raisin, and some estery Belgian yeast notes. Flavors follow suit, sweet up front from the dark fruits and sugary malts, with a lightly tart charry overtone that turns a bit acrid on the finish. There is a slightly medicinal feel overall. Medium bodied, with balanced carbonation, the finish is slightly dry and yeasty. Decent brew.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2008
draft at redlight redlight. Musty, yeasty, aroma with sweet malts, light colored fruits, green grapes, hints of cherries, maybe even dried figs. Pours a reddish amber with golden sides and a thin white head that dissipate. Hints of cherries as soon as it hits your tongue, then turns to sweet malts, sugary, with a slight tartness, very smooth with spicy yeast. This is a really really good beer.
