1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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..

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a decent Belgian Strong Ale. Spicy, and some sweet and sour flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy redish orange color. Sour and spice aroma. A bit of sour malt and sweet hops. Not all that impressive, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. . .

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not red, but orange colored. Licorice aroma and flavor. Rather alcoholic. Sweetish with just a bit of malt. Unremarkable beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reddish coloured. Weak fruity aroma. Very sour and boring flavour. This brew really sucks.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
