look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

It is marketed as a "blood red ale," due to the Rye Malt that is used in its brewing. In reality, it is more of a orange/brown with maybe a bit of red highlight if you hold it up to a light.

It pours with a decent beige head that sticks around while you drink it. There is minimal lacing, but some.

There is a berry, fruit smell to this beer. You can also smell the malt and European hops (this is after all an ale.) Some earthy traces as well.

I got a deep fruity taste from this beer first. It is quickly followed by the toasty malt and then a slightly bitter finish.

The beer has low carbonation, and a refreshing mouthfeel to it.

At the end of the day, I found this to be a pretty tasty beer. I think I would have enjoyed a bit stronger of a taste..maybe more hops, or maybe just have one of the flavor profiles be more pronounced. But overall, a good beer. It won't be at the top of any of my lists, but I can see buying another six of this somewhere down the line.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Color- brassy amber. Medium head.

Aroma- lightly roasted malt with hint of caramel and sweet tobacco.

Taste- A mild ale beginning light bodied and lackluster throughout finishing gentle with perhaps a tiny hint of hop. A good session beer on a hot day.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 8/3/2013.
