COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is pretty self explanatory: It’s RED. A judicious amount of Honey Malt gives this beer its distinctive honey/cherry sweetnes. The malt also contributes to the slightly sour/acidic taste of this beer. There are some hops in there, but the hop flavor and aroma is practically non-existent. This also helps accentuate the sweet character of this beer.

Orange-amber hue with silky head. Pleasant, distinctive belgian aroma, lightly prickly spices and crystal malting. Crisp belgian yeast combines with caramel malts. Light pepper spiciness. Nice complexity. A little warmth towards the end. Truly a fantastic, delightfully, understanded example of the style.

Deep mahogany red. Light head with a nice bit of lace. A little bit of dustiness to the aroma, but otherwise smells of sweet malts. Caramel malts with a melon citrus hop back. Thick mouthfeel, but somehow the body is light. Not as "Belgish" (I lay claim to that word) as the rest of the Boorians.

*Already sent a correction....this should be the Red von Boorian. Dark red with medium head. Light belgian yeast aroma mixed with hops and sweet malt, nothing is too domintating though. Spicy hops in the taste, but balanced well. Belgian yeast flavor is subtle the whole way through. Pretty good. Easily the best I sampled at Elliott Bay.
