COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a nice thick off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes is OKish. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation doesn’t’ really stand out and chilies notes are way too subtle.

750ml bottle. Cloudy raisin colour, some orange red at the edges. Large shaving cream head. Dusty, dried fruit aroma. Dusty taste, some spicy tang, not a lot of sweetness. Overall, something different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

APPEARANCE - great looking ale - definitely fits red ale expectations, but also is fairly cloudy. Solid white head. NOSE - definite Belgian notes, but lite. FLAVOR - Where's the ANCHO!?!?! Has good Belgian beer flavor, but I get ZERO ancho, and very little red. NOTES - I'd like the beer better if it were claimed to be a Belgian that's colored like a red ale. It's good, but not what it advertises.

Shark_Pants (266) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2014
Very attractive deep red with small ivory head that I would’ve liked to see stick around a bit longer before receding to a soapy film. Not getting a lot in the aroma except a little funk and malt. Very strong and reasonably sweet malt backbone. Nice floral hop profile with a lot of citrus too. Delivers a really enjoyable dry and bitter finish with some lingering sweetness. Light to medium bodied and spicy on the tongue. Another impressive beer from ommegang.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
2014-10-11. Brown body with a modest beige head and some floating particles. 3+ Modest alcohol in aroma, dark malt, bit of a bite to it. Flavour is similar, sweet malt core, light bitterness and alcohol bite, yeast. Okay, but disappointingly average. Decent but the parts don’t quite come together for me today. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

Bottle from ABC Winter Haven. Nose is caramel and toffee with spicy yeast and rye. Flavor is similar. Very nice overall.
