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.

A friend loves it so I bought it. A decent beer but I won't seek it out. Nice looking reddish brown color. Smell is unremarkable. I can't detect anything distinct. Taste is fine - very slightly piney but vague. I can't put my finger on what it tastes like, which isn't to say it's bad but a bit ordinary. Light effervescent mouthfeel. I have been to Brewery Vivant and had great beer there. This is pretty middle of the road (and I won't say anything about the name).
