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.

Holdwine (1114) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Liked this a lot. Sweeter than I thought it would be. Great malt character, wheaty. Not sure where the heat is, unless it was just with the tempering of the sweet fruit notes. Slight rye spiciness. Fun label, fun beer.

dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
If you’re looking for peppers in this one; good luck. More like a wheat beer with earthy hop finish. Des notes de céréales et d’épices. De la cannelle surtout. Un nez de blé et d’herbes aromatiques. On y retrouve également du clou de girofle, des traces de banane et de jujubes. Un profil gustatif très élaboré et très près d’une bière de blé. Un visuel brunâtre teinté de rouge. Une petite mousse beige pâle qui tient un temps. Une attaque terreuse et astringente. De toutes petites notes de cannelle; mais une finale terriblement terreuse et sèche. Les notes de la finale sont d’écorce et de terre humide. La finale terreuse supplante facilement les notes prometteuses de l’olfactif. La cannelle, les petits fruits et le blé sont disparus au profit des houblons terreux. Les piments forts sont tout simplement inexistants. Les amateurs de sensations fortes seront déçus.
