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.

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.

Rating #2095- 2015.09.28 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 5, Beer 197 – Draught at Brewpub - Lunch before the plane ride home. mild haziness, amber pour, quite bubbly. aroma is mild funk, mild dish soap. Palate is all over the map, just an odd funky vegetal quality that is pretty offputting.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Malt and a touch of honey and yeast spice on the nose. Medium bodied, fruity malt,a bit of yeast. Fruity malt and yeast into the finish, soft plums and warm musk.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
Aiming for de koninck but doing it the wrong way, with high temperature (maybe, I’m guessing), leading to overly estery, phenolic character.

ACHops (1375) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2014
On tap @ Elliott Bay West Seattle. Pours cloudy reddish amber with very thin white head. Aroma is sweet fruity light caramel malt. Taste is medium caramel malt, heavy cloying berry fruit notes, and dry very lightly hopped finish. Some good notes here, but really unbalanced and the fruit is applied with a heavy hand. A bit strange to find this in a "red" at any rate. Quite a departure from a regular red.

Ferris (12904) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft - Sweet cherry, perfume and some Belgian yeast. Cloudy reddish orange with. A decent white head. Malty, cherry and a long cherry finish. Odd, but I like it. Like a weak Flemish red.

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.

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.

Serving: from tap at Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub Aroma: light apple aroma. Appearance: almost no initial head with no lacing. Clear, dark-orange body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and moderately sour, apple finish with long duration. Palate: medium bodied with dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Easy to drink with a unique taste.

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.

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.
