CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2004
(3cl bottle) Pours a large, beige head and a red-amber body. There is much peppery sediment and activity in the glass. Head doesn't dissipate even after 5 minutes. Yeast and oranges nose.Very sour, yeasty and coriander flavour. Tinny finish. Awful stuff! Yuck.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2004
Deep amber hue with a nice presentation, a big fluffy head that doesn't want to leave. Aroma is yeasty, fruity (cherries, peaches, oranges, spicy banana). Taste is also quite yeasty with the malt profile being honey-ish and dry. Give this 12% alcohol and there's definitely a sambuca flavor in there. Very very similar to the Satan Gold and not quite worth hunting..

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2004
This is a decent Belgian Strong Ale. Spicy, and some sweet and sour flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Deep red/copper color with an ample, frothy beige head. Sweetness in the nose and in the flavor. Great label but not so great beer.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy redish orange color. Sour and spice aroma. A bit of sour malt and sweet hops. Not all that impressive, but not bad.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2004
11.2 oz capped bottle: water orange blood pours from the bottle. . . capped with a retentive, white plasma. Anise, fruit cake, peach fuzz, sour pale malt, clove stick and strawberries make up an interesting, though light aroma. Nice creamy palate that has a slight grainy/sugar quality that I like. Flavours are okay - peaches, bananas, and a slight sourness. Long moist, bitter dough finish that has an interesting fruity quality. Nothing spectacular, but just good enough to keep it interesting. . .

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2004
Open slowly! A quick eruption out of the bottle. A cloudy orange color with a light beige and large head. A scent of spices left in a dank basement. A sweet & sour thing going on in the flavor with caramel, fruit and spice tones. Alcohol noticeable but doesn't overwhelm. A bit thin feeling but overall, not a bad brew on this cold snowy eve.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2003
Not red, but orange colored. Licorice aroma and flavor. Rather alcoholic. Sweetish with just a bit of malt. Unremarkable beer.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2003
Reddish coloured. Weak fruity aroma. Very sour and boring flavour. This brew really sucks.

Ungstrup (29082) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2003
The aroma is pretty yeasty with notes of fruit and corriander. The color is an unclar red (no wonder it is called red) and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is yeasty with strong notes of corriander and light notes of fruit and cowberries. It runs prickling over Your tongue - is it the alcohol? It ends on a dry slightly prickling note. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin - especially compared to the ABV. It is not that complex a beer - I had expected more - but it still has a nice taste.
