belgian pale red they call this one. i found it to be more american than belgian, just because of the intense dry hopped aroma and flavor of this brew. it overpowers the belgian style yeast used to a point hard to recognize. it pours a clear color more red than amber, with a small white head that dies out rather fast. it smells like west coast hops, sticky and citric. there are also belgian yeast notes and caramel and crystal malt presence, but they take a back seat to the hops. flavor is also very hoppy, its refreshign and crisp. the yeast plays only a minor role here. feel is good, well carbonated wit a medium body. overall this was better than average, but not a standout. (683 characters)

On tap at the brewery. According to the chalk board the beer is a Belgian Style Pale Red Ale with ~57 IBUs and ~6.4% ABV. Served in a pint glass the beer arrives a hazy orange brown color, almost amber, with a 1 finger off-white head, some retention, and lacing. The nose is a bit muted but consists of a mild belgian yeast, sweet with citrus fruitiness, hints of caramel malts and peppery spice. The flavor is much stronger and enjoyable than the nose. A biscuit malt base from which the earthy and citrus hop flavor grows. The belgian yeast and light spice provide a pleasant flavor. Medium bitter. Finishes dry with a lingering citrus fruit and mild bitterness on the tongue. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this was my favorite of the brewery. A unique offering and very enjoyable. (797 characters)

Nice dark caramel color with a thin head on the pour. Rich malts take over the smell with a little citrus. Very smooth beer to drink. Lots of rich malts from the red style. I didn't get too much Belgian flavor, but the beer was enjoyable. Very easy to drink, especially since most beers are over 9% here. (304 characters)
