Appearance: Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown body topped by a thin, off-white head.

Smell: Aroma of caramelized pale malts, slightly grainy, with notes of fruity apricot.

Taste: Caramel malts with a taste of caramelized sugars and just the teeny-tiniest pinch of cocoa. Toss in some apricots. Spicy hop character with a medium amount of bitterness, though the beer still finishes fairly sweet and fruity.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: An enjoyable ale, though it across as more of just a basic red than a Belgian red, as I never found an characteristically Belgian esters or phenolics.
