I am posting this review here under the assumption that it is the same one brewed by the Livery for Martini’s in Kalamazoo.

This is a well rounded, enjoyable red ale that’s not red at all.
It pours an amber tan color with a deliciously fragrant Belgian yeasty-ester aroma. A Belgian red ale, perhaps? There’s a light malty sweet taste that balances the yeasty ester floral flavor. Not cloying, not overpowering, but just enough to give it a backbone. This was a good one, especially over a few slices.

On tap at the brewery.

Pours a moderate amber color with a thin off-white head and not much lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of lightly-toasted malt and then a whole lot of butter. Diacetyl bomb right there. Crazy amount of it. Some redeeming character in the malt, so I'll go for a 1.5, which is more than I can say for the flavor. Taste. Seriously? This is beyond bad. I can't understand a beer like this being served. Unfathomable amounts of diacetyl and nothing else behind it. Really awful. Light and buttery. Gross.
