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.

aroma of dark fruit and roasted malt; medium bodied with flavors of roatsed malt, dry rye manlt, and dark fruit; the ancho chilies give it some great spice notes and a hint of smoke; a nice, dry, bitter finish

pottygok (486) - Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Aroma: Dried fruit with deep malty aromas. Appearance: Dark mahogany with a tan head that leaves little lacing. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by hints of sourness across the tongue. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, dry finish. Overall: Not disappointing, but not mind blowing either. It’s a well-developed beer, but I’m not sure it’s worth the price. I wouldn’t seek it out again.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle at Max’s. Pours a deep amber body with light ring of lacing. Aroma is pepper, spice, alcohol, grain, rye and cleaner. Mouthfeel is light to medium with abrasive burn up front, maybe alcohol - but not sure; additional notes of spice, vegetable character, malt, grain, strange boozy/rye flavor. Hot and harsh - not a fan.

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
muddled mix but unique, with the spices and a tad of heat in the head. So-so drinkability. LCBO find.

Theydon_Bois (9912) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at RBESG ’14, day 4 not so grand tasting at Craft Clerko, 10/08/14 from the Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. Hazed chestnut brown with a decently appointed beige covering. Nose is Belgian yeast esters, spice, candied fruit peel, tangy dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises much the same, grassy, straw, yeast esters, tangy dark fruits, light rye bread. Medium + body, spritzy carbonation a touch OTT for me, candied fruit peels resonate in the close. Ok Belgian stylee that has to be assigned as ’speciality pissing grain’ just cos it has bastard rye in it !

RBESG pt 19. Craft Clerkenwell. Grandish Tasting. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, airy and dry. Light dry malts. Tangy fruits battle dry floralness. Dry finish. Okay. Nice tangy fruits but a bit dry.
