Served in a snifter
A - It it reddish orange in color with some suspended yeast. The initial pour yielded about three inches of tan head.
S - I smell some tea and floral hops.
T - The taste is similar to the smell. I get some tea flavors and floral hops.
M - Medium
O - This is a tasty red ale. The hop profile isn't overpowering. The floral hops compliment the malt bill and make a very drinkable beer. It is a little too high priced to make a regular for my humble means, $11.99 for a four pack of sixteen ounce cans.

16 oz can served in an over-size glass mug. Large vessel recommended since this ale has a huge frothy tan head.
A Belgian-American fusion beer that works. The aroma shifts back and forth between yeasty-fruity wet leather and American hops. The taste seems more stable but again has the Belgian and American (hops) aspects in nice balance. Hints of citrus, pineapple and other tropical fruits.Moderate complexity and mild bitterness.
Feel: lively, medium body; good carbonation.
O: not your everyday IPA.

Pours a beautiful copper brown,with an ever-so-slight haze. 2.5-inch, creamy, tan head forms and dissipates slowly to 1.5 inch. Distinctive hop and yeast nose. Suggestions of sour-dough bread. Most pleasant. Medium body. The palate is bright with lingering malt and bitter notes. Much Belgian lace. Dry. Great aperitif beer! This ale made me hungry. Highly moreish! A definite repurchase.

Poured from the can a bright reddish-brown color with a single finger of beige head. Good amount of lacing left behind.
The aroma was malty with red fruit and a bit of pineapple thrown in.
The taste was caramel maltiness upfront with red fruit, orange notes and a hoppy bite. Bitterness lingers.
Medium bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation.
A pretty good but not great Red Ale from Bon Vivant.
