Loved this beer- had it on tap at Bruery Provisions and then brought a bottle home as well. One of the better red/ambers I’ve had. Big nose with blend of citrus and caramels; gorgeously dark red and perfect carbonation. Taste is huge and like a red IPA. Reminds me of GF HopHead Red but not as bitter.

I had high hopes for this beer before I tried it. It is well crafted, and I love the idea to barrel age a red ale. But I felt that the dry hopping is too much of a contradicting flavor for this beer. But again. Well crafted

On tap at the Bruery Provisions. Pours red...go figure. Smells of citrus and some piney hops. Some sweetness. Lots of bitterness at the end...more than I expected. Not much of the oaked flavor in there.

Enjoyable and as the description suggest, this is a brash one. Pours a nice reddish hue. Citrus hop notes and oak in the nose. flavor is piercingly bitter, with hints of oak. Not much else going on for me, but I certainly enjoyed it.

Poured into a tulip, brownish amber with big fluffy tan head that stays around for a long time. Aroma of big piney and grapefruit hops, toasted caramel malt, and fresh oak. Taste is mildly sweet and nutty, with medium bitterness. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Very enjoyable and different beer!

The aroma is really sweet with a hint of wood. Almost peachy. The appearance is murky and carbonated. The taste starts off sweet then rolls into the wooden flavor that finishes sour. The palate is different. Overall, an interesting beer, that I would buy fo sho.

On tap at The Bruery. A tastey red with a nice oak character. A slightly sweet bready body noticable hoppyness. I got a growler of this one.

Clownoisseur (353) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2014
On tap at The Bruery. Pour was a hazy amber/copper color, medium off-white head. Earthy hops, slight citrus, caramel malts. Nice beer but nothing jumps out at me. A bit thick and sweet for what I am after in an Amber.
