auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 First off, Im expecting a meaty Red Lager. Something real low ball and cheap. Instead, these thoughts are interrupted by a delicately perfumed sweet green apples, right off the wild tree in September. The skins shine in Brett glory and mix with sour wafts of passionfruit nectar. Florally brillant. Even the appearance is shimmering beauty, with a clear deep florid amber, with coarse bubbles and a toothy rim of off-white. The flavor is a sweet coursing dance of sour wildness and strict malt body. The intermidably terse grain sugars melt into a sweet candy caramel apples, dusted with chocolate powder. Hiding behind a facade of the most exacting beautiful fresh apple flavor is a backbone of real grain malt and the biting coalescence of hops for balance is exquisite. The hops are intended for a red, but work well in a wild fermented belgian. The brett character is smooth and soft, with perfumed edges of sourness and earth. This bottled version by Ron Jefferies is the best kept secret in the Upper Peninsula. Was swinging for a ground out and hit a home run. Really another exciting Jolly Pumpkin brew, hidden behind a North Peak bottle. Amazing!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Tap at brewery. Pours deep amber with brown highlights. Nice head and lacing. Aroma is bubblegum (weird). Flavor is malty sweet with a honey finish. Palate is a bit weak and leaves a sour aftertaste. Pretty good.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Sampled on draught @ North Peak Brewing Company in Traverse City, Michigan. Deep red, perfect color for an amber, with an attractive foam. Nearly non-esistant aroma, just a touch of toasted malt. Medicine and antibiotic flavors, with light toasted malt. Not much flavor or aroma.

hotstuff (4229) - Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Draft at North Peak Brewing Co. Small off-white head and fine-small sized bubbles that fully dissipated. Transparent, uncarbonated and an orange hue. Malt aroma and a malt and light hoppy flavor. Tingly palate. Medium bodied beer with good lacing.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 1, 2004
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body appeared uncarbonated transparent and copper in color. The nose contained notes of mild malt and hops. The mouth feel was tingly and hoppy initially then continued to linger around in the finish. It had a mild red flavor that was clean and crisp with notes of hops and mild malts.
