6th Feb 2013: in La Trappe, San Fransisco: sat in a dark area, so had trouble seeing the true colour of the beer, front label on bottle bright enough but my glass seemed to hold a dark orange brew within it, on top what looked like an off-white foaming crown.

Semi-sweet aroma with malts leading the way, with yeastiness and fruit esters just behind in strength.

The taste is a pleasant blend of biscuity malts and dark fruit flavours intermingled with yeast traces and some hop spruce hints. Very drinkable.

Body depth was fine and the alcohol sat nicely within the flavours.

I'm not usually a red ale type of person, but this beer can get one past that. It is a fine mix of hops and brandy like quality that make it a pure treat for the senses. The last time I had a Belgian style red ale this good was when I was in Belgium. The beer pours smoothly into your tulip ale glass with a substantial head and a bouquet of early sumer floral tones that whet the palate for its imminent arrival. A sip will not last long, as you will want to recharge your tastebuds posthaste and repeatedly. The colour, as you would expect, is on the red side of amber, but not crystal clear, nor too cloudy. As you can probably tell I liked this beer a lot and will search high and low for in on my many road travels. Frankly, I've had three different Unibroue beers over the past several days and they have all been brilliant.
