UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Draft at beer fest. Pours hazy reddish brown with minimal head. The aroma is nutty and light astringency. The taste is sweet apple with a dry hoppy finish. I don’t pick up much of a maple sweetness but maybe I’m getting the apple from that ingredient.

I didn't care for the spices in this red. Maybe because I was expecting a red a got something else skewed the rating but I poured this one out.
