4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Hamiltonís. Clear medium auburn with a small off - white head, down to a film within a few mins. Lots of fruity belgian yeast and banana in the nose, though not too sweet, just a little rye and toasted malt behind. Flavor is a little toastier, still plenty yeasty, clean ripe banana. Never sweet, dry finish, little rye. Bitterness at a 3. Soft light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Quite tasty. Good job at a Belgian style.

On tap at Downtown Johnny Browns, 8/13/10. When I hear "Belgian" "Rye" and "Red", that gets me going. Add Green Flash as the maker, and now I am positively dying for a tasting. Sadly this had little in flavor at all. About what you would expect from a Red ale from a vanilla producer. Who knows, the batch may have been old.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho.
the rye was hard to pick out, but it was still a really tasty beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Ruddy amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is really herbal and spicy with loads of rye malt character. A bit of soft chewy, grassy character over a bright lemony/citrusy nose. Quite bready with a lot of soft fruit and spice balancing it out. Itís pretty understated compared to some of their other anniversary beers, but itís very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Blind Tiger. Dark amber red with very lacy egg white head. Aroma is floral sweet and not much else, notes of faint Belgian spice/yeast. Taste is awesome - floral hoppiness mixes beautifully with fainter Belgian yeast/spice. More hops than spice, very enjoyable.
