3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours hazy orange with a moderate off-white head that fades and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of caramel, candy sugar, grass, pale fruit and yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet with apple, berries, caramel and a touch of hops. It closes with a soft fruity maltiness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice fruity Belgian red ale. Very drinkable but not terribly interesting. 2013-02-23

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Roodbruin troebel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet, intens fruitig met iets van rozen/siroop. Erg goed bier. Blijft gemiddeld hangen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Light amber, very hazy. Orange peel, marzipan, lightly tart finish. Much preferred over the blonde, but still only ok.
