look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the 750 ml bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is dark brown with mahogany hues when backlit. Large (2+ finger) big-bubbled head on top. Good foamy lacing sheets the glass.

S: Faint bready nose - fresh baked wheat bread with a touch of nuttiness and sweetness. Some spice is evident as it warms.

T: Bready cereal grains. Fruit - ripe apples and plum skins. Modest peppery spice. Finishes with a surprising hoppy bitterness that cuts through the sweeter stuff and the spice. And speaking of spice. . . at first I didn't get any heat from the ancho chili peppers, but after a few sips I realize it's there - faintly - on the back end of the palate, and lingers a bit in the aftertaste, more so as you work your way down the glass.

M: Active carbonation provides a nice fizziness - and gives the impression of lightness in the heft.

O: Good stuff. I wouldn't characterize this as an American Amber/Red, however. It's more of a hybrid - call it a Belgian Red, as the fizziness in the feel makes it seem more Belgian than American.
