COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Intensely fruity and complex Belgian-stlye ale. This special beer is brewing art from start to finish. A full mash tun of malted barley is required to reach the high gravity required for this style, along with a high percentage of a special classic Belgian-style malt. Noble hops are added sparingly to the kettle. During the long boil special kettle sugars are added in the Belgian tradition which lend unique flavors in the fermenter. A classic Belgian yeast strain is pitched and the long fermentation is monitored closely as the flavors develop. The beer is then chilled and aged before being kegged and bottled.

(750 ml bottle) Pours a thick apple cider-like body and color with thin off-white head. Aroma of yeast, alcohol, and peat moss. Buttery mouthfeel. Flavor of mostly alcohol and some apple, candy, and yeast. Thanks for sharing Kawa!

Big-time cloudy, unfiltered, yellow-orange appearance, no head, like apple cider. Effervescent alcohol aroma but not much else, maybe a bit yeasty. Smooth palate. Unbalanced, alcohol. Thanks Kawa for an uncommon brew.

Amber with a slight haze and an inactive head. Roasted marshmallow, spice, and light citrus on the aroma. Semi-sweet, alcoholic flavor with a sour finish. Seems a little thin. Good but weak.

Well, some of my cru (or is that krew or just plain old posse?) didn’t seem to think that this was so Grand. I thought it was fair or better. Sweet and rather pedestrian rather than grand.

Damn cloudy orange with minimal head. alcohol and dirty yeast aroma. taste is sweet malt and alcohol has a slight buttery note. the only taste that comes through on finish is alcohol which almost makes me shiver. this is scary looking, but worth the risk.

Belgian and very strong. Typical spicy taste with massive alcohol burn. A tad light on the malt. It’s nice to see an american brewer tackling this style, as it’s rarely attempted outside of Belgium.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2003
Thin head and a burning amber color. fruit and burn sugar in the nose with some alcohol. Cloyingly sweet with peppery notes and a little fruit and wood. But for the most part, sugar and alcohol. Prehaps after some ageing...

HumuloneRed (765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Cloudy orange and kind of soupy. I did not pick up too many complex flavors but some came out as it warmed up. The main flavors I got were woodsy and some fruit with a sour finish. Not my favorite.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Nice billowy head. Creamy mouthfeel. Unfiltered and that detracrs from the experience. Orange-gold color. Dark cherries, oranges, and lemons.. semi-dry finish.

2.6
IndianaRed (5122) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Bottle Pours a clear medium copper with a small off-white head. This dissapears quickly leaving sparse lacing and a thin white ring. Aroma is of malts and caramel. Slight apple/pear fruit hints as well. A little of that belgian spice. Flavor is a sharp bite of alcohol fumes and some apple and malts. The Alchohol is the main player here and overpowers everyone else too much.
