1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy brown with a creamy head and floaties. Sweet, spoiled cheesecake aroma, tastes unpleasingly sour and lemony - bloody wrong! Sour finish, medium body and disgusting. Old bottle, probably bad storage.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Liberty, served in a chalice. Pours a cloudy orange-red with a tiny beige head. Aroma: Yeast, malt, grapes, leaves, hints of lemon. Palate: Thick bodied, fizzy, foamy, long finish. Taste: sweet start, quickly turns bitter. Small hint of a spicy burnt feeling in the finish. It’s okay.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Was fairly disappointed with this. But probably, only because I was told it was a flemish red, which, while similar, is certainly not a flemish red. Poured a semi-clear amber with fair near white head. Slightly fruity and just a small twinge of tartness. Not all that enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, shared by Jay. Labeled "French Red Ale". Code on back reads "1522". Clear red - orange color. Thin off-white head. Little ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Softer carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Nice clean malty, lightly spicy flavor. Interesting, unique, pretty tasty malt profile. Lightly sweet taste, nice light spiciness. Alcohol is well hidden. This seems like it’d be a delicious beer to enjoy with a meal. I liked this more than I expected to... It grew on me as I sipped it

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille: Copper coloured, a bit unclear, big and stable loose off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose (almost a bit vinous) with a robust boppy counterpart; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; bisquity-honeyish finish balanced by distinctive hops and followed by a slight alcohol-burn in the aftertaste. Nice brew...

Bottle from kegs & barrels Plano, TX. Pours a deep copper with a medium white head. The aromas are malt, bread, bubblegum. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly dry with a medium body and good carbonation. Not a bad beer at all. Cheers!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear bronze with a fluffy beige head that sticks around and leaves good lacing. Lively carbonation. Aromas of peach, caramel, stewed apple and cinnamon. The taste starts out with some deep fruit before a hit of hop bitterness in the mid-palate. That slips away leaving some caramel sweetness. Finishes quite cleanly with some citrus and spice in the aftertaste. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark with some cloudiness. Tastes good for style. Aroma of caramelized malt and sugar with some dark fruit. Good overall beer. Finishes sweet with caramel. Some basement barrel, but very much like a dark Belgian strong. Bottle from Steamworks.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked bottle from Market Square liquors. Deep orange pour with a huge fluffy off-white head that takes forever to dissipate. Aroma is sweet caramel, yeast, citrus and pepper. Tastes are along the same lines with a light background tartness. Also dark fruit and bready. Medium slick palate. Interesting.
