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.

yngwie (13945) - 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

Oakes (12777) - 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.

bhensonb (11381) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
750 c&c from Bine & Vine. Opened with quite a pop. Pours dark copper iwth a beige head. Aroma of darkish fruit and some light, but insistent, pepper. Med body or better. Flavor is Belgian yeast, maybe banana ester (yes on that) with a little spice that could be rye and some pepper aspects. Still, there’s no question that this is "classic" Belgian ale. Peppers set aside, that is.
