This one is pretty self explanatory: It’s RED. A judicious amount of Honey Malt gives this beer its distinctive honey/cherry sweetnes. The malt also contributes to the slightly sour/acidic taste of this beer. There are some hops in there, but the hop flavor and aroma is practically non-existent. This also helps accentuate the sweet character of this beer.

Aiming for de koninck but doing it the wrong way, with high temperature (maybe, I’m guessing), leading to overly estery, phenolic character.

Draft - Sweet cherry, perfume and some Belgian yeast. Cloudy reddish orange with. A decent white head. Malty, cherry and a long cherry finish. Odd, but I like it. Like a weak Flemish red.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Malt and a touch of honey and yeast spice on the nose. Medium bodied, fruity malt,a bit of yeast. Fruity malt and yeast into the finish, soft plums and warm musk.

Dark amber with a dark nose of raisin and earthy nougat and some dusty caramel. Flavor is surprisingly light with some dark caramel and honey tones. Kinda indifferent.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Nose is rather sweet and super fruity. Very nice. Dark fruits, a touch of spice from the yeast, a little pepper. Enjoyable nose, almost teriyaki-y in a sense. Pours dark reddish brown, thinnish head, brown hues underneath. Flavors of sweet dark fruit, almost cherry like, some toast, a touch of salty notes, lightly spicy. Dry, sweet toasty finish. Really solid, enjoyable beer.

Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Fruity aroma with light hops. Loved the flavor of this beer it was easy drinking fruity type beer. The hops are light.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some definite bread elements to it, and a bit of sourness to it. Taste is slightly toasty, and is slightly sweet. Not bad.
