COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Reddish amber with a small white head. Has a mild yeast aroma with sweet malts. Flavor is a nice combination of sweet malt and hops with lighter notes of the sour, fruity, belgian yeast joining in. Overall the flavor of this beer is very subtle, yet balanced and not at all bland.

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.

Orange-amber hue with silky head. Pleasant, distinctive belgian aroma, lightly prickly spices and crystal malting. Crisp belgian yeast combines with caramel malts. Light pepper spiciness. Nice complexity. A little warmth towards the end. Truly a fantastic, delightfully, understanded example of the style.

Serving: from tap at Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub Aroma: light apple aroma. Appearance: almost no initial head with no lacing. Clear, dark-orange body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and moderately sour, apple finish with long duration. Palate: medium bodied with dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Easy to drink with a unique taste.

*Already sent a correction....this should be the Red von Boorian. Dark red with medium head. Light belgian yeast aroma mixed with hops and sweet malt, nothing is too domintating though. Spicy hops in the taste, but balanced well. Belgian yeast flavor is subtle the whole way through. Pretty good. Easily the best I sampled at Elliott Bay.

Whisky barrel aged version Tap at the brewery.

Red wine and balsamic vinegar, mildly sweet, cherries, layered over with whisky and vanilla. Tasty, genuine Flemish style red, but not something I’d want more than one of.

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.
