4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Don’t get me wrong. This is one tasty beer. The aroma smells of oranges / sweet mangoes. The appearance is red / amber / orange like my beard. The palate is refined, yet unpretentious. Overall a great tasting beer, though too expensive to obtain on a regular basis.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really loved this one. The aroma has sort of red wine vibe to it that reminds me of a sangria. The color is of liquid apricot. It does taste a bit like a red wine with the fruit notes combining with these steel and dirt notes. The finish is effervescent. It hides its 7% alcohol very well. It really redefines what beer can be for me.

Pours pale red with a 3 finger off-white head. Sweet and bitter. Malts and fruits. Also a nutty aroma and taste, but above all, orange peel and spices. Very interesting beer. Pleasantly surprised by this one!

The head pours out very high and thin, leaving small head with a little lacing. The smell is mellow and has apple scents. It’s flavor is very refreshing and taste great. Mouthfeel is very nice and brings the whole beer together greatly. I wish I could drink one once a week.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 oz bottle form a mix pack of 3 different Bière Du Boucanier beers.
Pours an amber color, very similar to their golden ale, though it is labeled a "red" It has a big foamy white that leaves a lot of lacing.
It smells really nice. The yeast is almost tutti fruity with a froot loops of fruity pebbles scent to it. One of the fruitiest smelling ales i have come across.
It tastes pretty fruity as well. Just straight up fruittiness, it works amazingly well. Melon, lime, strawberry, ect all combine for an amazing flavor.
This is my fav beer in this series.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a nice clear amber ale; almost red. A small white head was present upon initial pour but it quickly dissipated.
Smells of caramel and malts and various fruits that I was unable to pinpoint. I’m sure they’re there though.
Excellent tasting beer, very rich. The sweetness of the caramels and mystery fruits balance nicely with the malts.
Very smooth in the mouth, almost creamy. Went down great and gave me two of the most marvelous belches I have ever been given by a beer (I almost rated "mouthfeel" higher on account of this, but wasn’t sure if that was an accurate use of the category), and it tasted almost as good upon its return as it did when I took it down the first time.
While I greatly enjoyed this ale, and probably would have opened a second one had it been available; it was a bit too rich for me to drink more than one or two in a sitting.
All in all a great beer that made me glad to have looked beyond the price in favor of the experience.
