This is an impressive red ale. It’s got nice, nice hops on the nose and tongue. It is, however, well-balanced and drinkable. Impressive outing for Q Beer.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L.
Creamy and adherent head of good persistence. Reddish and orange color with discreet fizz and an elegant opaque aspect. Torrefy scent of cereals and singed malt. Discreetly dry taste with a pleasant and decided alcoholic content but not too excessive. Bitterish and coolness final.

An unclear orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey and spices. The flavor is slightly weak, but has notes of wood, honey, and spices, leading to a dry. Nice, but I’d like a bit more powerful flavor. Thanks Alex (fiulijn) for this one.

Fine though disappearing tan head, dark amber colored body. Nice and balanced aroma of malt, hop and nut with chocolate tones. Pretty thin flavor of rye with a hoppy bitterness and a dry end. All right, but not the most interesting, and could use some more body.
