Bouteille 330ml, dégustée au Bistro des Bières Belges à Saint-Hubert. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez malté de caramel sucré, léger d’alcool, de sucre brun et de fruits (notes de cerises et de prunes, traces d’agrumes). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes sirupeuses. Léger goût fruité sucré (notes de cerises, traces de raisins) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût malté de caramel assez sucré avec des notes de butterscotch puis en finale un goût d’alcool doux-moyen domine avec de faibles notes de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-long, moyen-léger amer d’alcool avec un goût sucré résiduel et des traces fruitées (moût de cerises). (hiver 2006-07)

suprchunk (2945) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a light, light red. Weird for something that bills itself as a Red. And plasters tartan all over its can. Fast fading head, with no lacing. Slightly malty. Slightly. Maybe I smell hops? Maybe. If I didn’t try hard to smell something I wouldn’t have smelled anything. Little malty up front. Floral hops out back. Might not even be hops. They may have actually thrown flowers in here. Little sweetness that sticks around on your lips for a while. Like after eating a lollipop. Sticky and thin. I could drink maybe one of these at a sitting. Maybe, but I’m having a tough time choking this 500ml can down right now.

Boxereddy (457) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2015
Dieprood bier met een grote lichtbruine schuimkraag. De geur is zeer zoet met noten van alcohol, bessen en citrus. De smaak is zoet met sterke accenten van alcohol en hints van metalen. Zoet mondgevoel maar wel een droge afdronk.

33cl bottle. Label says 6.6% abv. Orange-red with an ample tan head. sweet malt and sugar aroma. very sweet caramel flavor, with orange and berry undertones coming out towards the end. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing for a beer of this strength.
