Pours a really bright red color, like a red wine spritzer or something. Very unexpected, but fitting to the name of the beer. Not much carbonation, but there is a thin head that has a pink hue to it.
Smell is very faint. Maybe a slight bit of a lambic smell. Very subtle.
Taste is not incredibly strong either. A bit of malt, maybe, and a bitter tinge at the end.
Mouthfeel is good. A very smooth drink.
Drinkability is not good. This beer does not have a ton of taste or anything. Slightly strange, don't really know where they are going with this beer. Not worth a try.

This is, hands down, my favorite beer of all time. I encountered it a few years ago back home in Atlanta at a place called The Porter. It has a lovely blood red color and a pinkish foam that I've never seen in any other beer I've ever had. It has hints of apple, orange, and a floral print somewhere from what I tasted. At 6.66% ABV, it's a devilishly delightful drink. It's a little thin in your mouth, which doesn't really make a lot of sense considering the flavor you get. Also, the smell, doesn't really hit you as hard as I think it should, but those two things are minor compared to the beautiful flavor.

I was able to buy a bottle of this and did just because I had to pour it into a glass and see it with my own 2 eyes.

The appearance is a site to see red beer with a pink head awesome.

The taste on the other hand is nothing to brag about. It was drinkable, I will only have it this once.
