A: Beautiful ruby red, almost mahogany, with a light brown ring of head.

S: Dark fruit and malt in the nose.

T: Tart strawberries and some fruity Belgian yeast esters.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: This is perhaps a less intense take on the style, and more akin to the less oaky Flanders Red Ale style.
