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.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color, hazy, with compact head. This red ale has a lean and clean caramel profile, rather dry, it could as well be a Bock; the bitterness is moderate; there could be a light smoke touch in the aroma. It has a not of sweetness in the final, a spicy touch, and mild fruity esters.
Balanced, elegant, well made although not the most complex beer.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2014
On tap at Yard House Houston. If pours an unclear brown body under a dense, finger thick beige head. The aroma is spiced and Belgian, with prunes, some roasted notes and a grassy, piney hop touch. The flavor has a roasted malty touch in the back, prunes and some caramel and spices, and with some hoppy bitterness dealing with the sweet malts. Full body, pleasant carbonation, and a lasting finish which feels quite dry. Sure a beer worth repeating. 140511

Leighton (13954) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 Sunday tasting at Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell. Pours clear amber-gold with a white cream head. Yeast-forward, with rich lightly toasted bread, candi sugar. Faint plastic and bitter grain husk. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish with further yeast and grain husk. So so. I’ve had much better from Ommegang.

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle, from the Gibsons LDB.
Murky dark red. Aroma has more fruity acid notes than you’d expect. Malty, caramel mostly with some fruity character, and just a touch of ancho. Not entirely cohesive.

Theydon_Bois (12707) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 !
