bunget (499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
330ml bottle. It’s more orange than red, copperish. Even if it seems that there’s a fair amount of carbonation, the head is rather small and quickly dissipates. Yeasty Belgium aroma, some sweetness, caramel, dried apricot, orange peel. Taste is surprisingly light and fresh, orange peel, a little malt, caramel, kind of juicy. Not bad, but a little too sweet.

b3shine (5138) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Draft to tulip. Looks off for a "red ale"; burnt-orange and fairly translucent. Smells decent, but nothing special. Tastes Belgiumy, but forgettable. Mouthfeels is good. Glad I tried it, but I probably won’t buy it again.

Amber colour, clear like a september sunset. White to beige long head. Jam nuts, champagne, marzipan and baked apple aroma. Awesome!

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2012
11.2 fl oz Bottle. Clear yellow orange color. Bigger white head, fading to thin. Much different than typical red ales, just sort of tastes like a Belgian. Lighter carbonation. Fruity spicy aroma. Some spice taste, some bitter, some alcohol taste.

solidfunk (3595) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Pours hazy without too much head. Smells sugary sweet, almost cane-like, mouth has a little more sugarness that paints the upper walls of the mouth well even after a breath or two. Alcohol taste isn’t too pronounced but it’s there. Bottle from a variety pack at LCBO

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2012
330ml bottle. pours clear amber with average off white head. Head quickly dissipates with no real lacing. Aroma is super sweet with some malt, spices, brown sugar, citrus, and light fruits. Taste is extremely sweet with a slightly bitter and spicy finish. medium bodied, oily and somewhat sticky texture with soft carbonation. I really enjoyed this..would definitely drink again!
