Alengrin (227) - 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 (271) - 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 (316) - 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 (897) - 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.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Light amber, very hazy. Orange peel, marzipan, lightly tart finish. Much preferred over the blonde, but still only ok.

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottled 330ml. -from www.beershop.hr. Slight cloudy orange/golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity orange (jaffa cakes) nose. Sweet malty, yeasty and biscuity orange (peel) taste with notes of spices and touch of alcohol. Bit too fruity for me.
