3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Dexters. Burgundy red brown body. Soapy, patchy, off-white head. Brutal aroma, not so enticing. Fuesal woody cherry notes, harsh. Smoother taste than the aroma. Burnt woody cherry notes, somewhat balanced by the soapy citrus backbone. I don’t get much "Belgian", more like Arrogant Bastard. Kind of half ass execution, with a west coast hop bill. Not impressive. Some smoother chocolate and caramel tones come out as it mellows. Sugary, fruity amber malt. OK...

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated semi-transparent dark ruby red brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. . The mild flavor contained notes of mild nut and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Draft @ Great Lost Beer. Pours a rich dark brown with hints of ruby along the edges.... good two finger off white head. Aromas are subtle except for the belgian candied sugar... lots of sweetness and a touch of booze coming up to the nose on this one. The flavors are a bit more complex and save the beer from just being a syrup sweet bomb... nice undertones of citrus peel, cocoa and a little bit of boozy spice.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a medium frothy khaki head. Aroma is spicy, yeast, bread, and citrus. The taste is spicy belgian yeast, citrus, orange rind, and the finish is dry and highly bitter. It's just ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler shared by Ant. Poured a full foamy super light beige head over a dark brown body. Aroma of big Belgian yeast, sweet sugary chocolate, dark fruit, plum, prune, figs, hints of nutts and dough. The body is slightly chalky overall with a medium mouthfeel and average carbonation. Flavor of dry toast, dry fruits, bad chocolate, yeast and sugar. I guess when you can’t make a good beer you make your own stye, Belgian Red IPA WTF????

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Bellmore Beverage. The aroma is caramel, burnt caramel, spicy, bready. The appearance is clear red/brown, off-white head. The flavor is caramel, bread, butter, slightly spicy. The finish is spicy hops, residual sweetness. Medium to medium/thick in body. Pretty good, not good enough to be an Anniversary Ale.
