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.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Nose is rather sweet and super fruity. Very nice. Dark fruits, a touch of spice from the yeast, a little pepper. Enjoyable nose, almost teriyaki-y in a sense. Pours dark reddish brown, thinnish head, brown hues underneath. Flavors of sweet dark fruit, almost cherry like, some toast, a touch of salty notes, lightly spicy. Dry, sweet toasty finish. Really solid, enjoyable beer.

Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Fruity aroma with light hops. Loved the flavor of this beer it was easy drinking fruity type beer. The hops are light.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Dark amber with a dark nose of raisin and earthy nougat and some dusty caramel. Flavor is surprisingly light with some dark caramel and honey tones. Kinda indifferent.

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some definite bread elements to it, and a bit of sourness to it. Taste is slightly toasty, and is slightly sweet. Not bad.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2008
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.

BuckeyeBoy (2633) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2009
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.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2007
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.

OldMrCrow (1772) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Whisky barrel aged version Tap at the brewery.

Red wine and balsamic vinegar, mildly sweet, cherries, layered over with whisky and vanilla. Tasty, genuine Flemish style red, but not something I’d want more than one of.
