COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian Style Red Ale pours a deep red and presents aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and toasted malt.  It is brewed with a Belgian Trappist yeast, noble hops, and malt from Belgium and Germany.  Medium bodied and 6% abv, it is very drinkable yet still has complex flavors that only the right Belgian yeast can provide.

Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium red with some brown undertones and a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that diminished quickly down to a thin cap and medium collar, producing fair sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a mild bread malt, floral hops and a moderate dose of sweaty yeast with notes of apple, caramel and dark fruit (plums and cherries). The taste was lightly malty and sweet with hints of caramel and apple from the start and sweetly acidic with a note of dark fruit and a good yeast presence at the end. The flavor hung on for a little while with a nice fruity wheat taste left behind. Mouthfeel was a step above light in body with an oily dry texture and a lively carbonation. Overall a brew that is very drinkable, and has a delightful mellow fruity flavor...

BREWMUSKCLES (2232) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2013
toasty malt, complex and refined. that is to say mellow and laid back. the beer is smooth with notes of caramel, honey and a zing in the carbonation that makes the ivy like mid palate minty right before a lingering bitter end. demonstrative and Belgian pleasantly light in the spice. moderately full frothy body.

Pours cloudy orange/red with the largest fluffy white head of any beer I have ever poured out of a bottle. Not sure what that indicates about the beer but here goes.Tastes awful!!! Maybe I got a bad bottle. DRAIN POUR!

Beerathon (1159) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Has a slight Belgian feel to it was the yeasty/spice aroma and mouth tingle. Murky/fizzy reddish orange with thin head. It’s alright.

bubbleflubber (1826) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours brick red into the glass, with a nonexistent head nor lace of which to speak. The nose is of crisp green apples. Flavors pull me toward a cider, with citrus, semi-astringent and mulling spices. The mouthfeel is a bit flat, and the body again feels like a cider. Weird, this one. Not my favorite style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at winners circle. Pours clear red without head. The aroma has some biscuit, and some sort of malt. The taste is very malty with a slight bitterness. Pretty drinkable but not memorable.

Rated at Brew Bern 2012. This was fairly unremarkable for a beer. Didn’t have any characteristics I would really associate with a Belgian or a red ale, and was entirely "meh" to me. Not bad, just unmemorable.
