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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very active upon opening. The cloudy orange brew gives off a sweet caramel odor. It stays light yet still fills the mouth. Some toasted flavors as well, but I am still left wanting some of the sweetnes that the aroma suggested.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange colour, good creamy head, very persistent. The aroma is fruity (Peach and black cherry) and yeasty. The flavour is malty, quite sweet (vanilla and caramel), fruity (apple, strawberry and peach), yeasty and a little bit sour (citrus). The finish is spicy (pepper) with a touch of bitterness. Well balanced with the alcohol well hidden: a good beer. Lacks of character probably, but still pleasant.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Dark blond beer with a medium off white head. Slightly malty taste and aroma. Sweet start with a medium bitter finish. Not an interesting beer. The alcohol is also a bit too obvious. It is slightly better than Satan Gold, which does not say much.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber color, small head. Smells amber malty, like Koninck or Palm, bit sweet. Sweet malty beer, but very thin. Doesn't taste like a Belgian Strong Ale, though it is 8%. I wouldn't know why i should order this beer again...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 Bit malty, earthy, sweet nose. Amber-red coloured, dying head (probably due to the glass in the cafe). taste is a bit too weak, Earthy, some fruits and sweet malts. palate is more bitter with some hints of forestfruits.
Rerate. Quite carbonated, bit watery. Not too great.
