This was an exceptional scarlet red color (especially when held in the light). This was a well crafted brew, with an excellent blend of the red wine and Belgian brew notes. If any complaints at all, early in the pour the tastes and aroma veered a little 'one note' towards the wine barrel. As the glass warmed, some of the familiar Belgian notes became more pronounced. Good balance, and overall unique character. I would suggest giving this a try (as I would with all of Brewery Vivant's inspired ales!
