Bendrixian (1487) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Cloudy burnt copper red colour with a frothy head. banana- bread/yeasty aroma with some caramel malts and esters. Shows a hint of caramelized something. Sticky palate with those esters and caramel coming through with a sort of berry pie finish that I find pleasant. Decent stuff and sort of interesting.

nathanvc (220) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Overall malty aroma with caramel, fruits and honey. It appears clear amber orange/red with a tan rocky head. The taste is sweetness with almost no bitter tones. The alcohol comes in after a while too. It has medium to full mouthfeel, which is positive, but it leans towards stickiness.

dnicolaescu (1975) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 6, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL. Look: clear amber brandy-like, off white biggish creamy head with good retention. Aroma: sweet and sour fruit, berries, spicy yeast, malt/grains, sweet/honey, some alcohol as it warms up. Taste: smooth creamy mouth feel, berries, pleasant spicy phenolics. The finish is a bit too sirupy and hollow. Nice beer otherwise.

Net zoals de dark ale een absolute meevaller. Een bier met heel veel smaak aan. Dit ga ik nog drinken

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
One of the more recent additions to the Boucanier brand, with a very thick, massively rocky, dense and yellowish head, colour a misty but pure amber (so not actually red or copper, contrary to its name - already a little disappointed now). Sweetish aroma with a lot of DMS (red cabbage) apart from orange, caramel, honey, candied cherries, rhum, vanilla and leafy hops. Taste begins sweet with some citrussy freshness, then becoming mellow malty, caramelly and a bit nutty, finish smooth and lightly bitter but more so from insufficiently masked alcohol than hops, also some sticky sweetness.

Icedwarf (1272) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Roodbruin troebel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet, intens fruitig met iets van rozen/siroop. Erg goed bier. Blijft gemiddeld hangen.

fhoublon (459) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml achetée à la LCBO Rideau à Ottawa. Dégustée le 16 novembre 2008 (Tulip). Bière rouge orangée voilée. Mousse beaucoup, col épais, grossier et durable. Assez effervescente, bulles fines à moyennes. Odeur de miel bien présente, de levure et d’alcool. Goût de miel, de céréales et de levure. Très bonne mais inférieure aux meilleures belges, moins raffinée.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2014
330ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nearly clear medium red with a solid one finger white head. Really good head retention but lacing really isn’t anything to speak of. Aroma really has a lot going on. Tangerine mixed with what is almost a cola or chocolate note. A bit of spicy Belgian yeast is thrown in there too. The taste is less impressive. Sweet right off the bat and a very strong tootsie roll/cherry coke flavor that is just odd. I really think it might be oxidation. Light orange/tangerine is in the background but it is buried under the chocolate. Extremely sweet throughout that borders on cloying with a sticky finish. Overall, this beer is a mess. I’m not sure of the age but oxidation seems to have hit it. Some weird flavors going on and just way too sweet.
