COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer with an identity crisis. It starts life thinking it is Belgian but soon realizes it is destined to be more American after all. A dark red ale that blends a mildly roasty flavor with punchy American hops. The fruity character of the Belgian yeast rounds out the profile to make a beer that orbits mysteriously around the world of existing beer styles. Belgian red IPA? Malt bill: Marris Otter malt, Pilsener Malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, black malt, flaked barley, sugar. Hops: Nugget, Amarillo, Cascade, Apollo, Columbus

Red amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, caramel, spices, floral hops, and a bit of grass. Taste of citrus, light pine, some grapefruit, some caramel malts, spicy, and finishing dry.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. The beer pours a reddish color with a tan head. The aroma is definitely hoppy, with some nice pine and orange citrus notes. There is also a nice amount of bread in the aroma, as well as some yeast notes. The flavor is more of the same. The biscuit malt goes very well with the orange and pine notes from the American hops. The Belgian yeast is present in the flavor as well and adds a little bit of spiciness. The bitterness is fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Tap in DSM. Murky reddish brown. Topped with a dense khaki head. Fruity slight funky nose. Lots of malt and a little bit of caramel. The taste has some leather goodness and light pears. Just. Shiny of spice in the finish. Another smooth lighter beer from Flix.

3.4
joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2012
A pint at Flix. Pours dark amber with a off white head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. This is a pleasantly bitter beer with grapefruit notes from the hops and an overall undertone of tobacco and sourdough. This beer is lightly medium bodied and easy to put down. Solid.
