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.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Reddish amber with a small white head. Has a mild yeast aroma with sweet malts. Flavor is a nice combination of sweet malt and hops with lighter notes of the sour, fruity, belgian yeast joining in. Overall the flavor of this beer is very subtle, yet balanced and not at all bland.

On tap at West Seattle brewpub. Pours out a nice mahogany topped with a small head. Aroma of sweet berries and spice. Tast was of sweet honey, light spice and rich malt. With a tail of yeast.

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.
