look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- deep red color with a slight lace of bubbles around the perimeter of the glass. Was served in a regular pint glass, so I was immediately skeptical of this beers real roots.
Chill haze is evident. Perhaps this beer needs more time, or just a warmer environment.

Virtually no aroma to be found, seems okay for the style. Slightly malty, and sweet smell to it.

Light in taste, but with a decent malt flavor, doesn't taste sour at ale, as what you might expect with a Belgian style red. you can taste hints of caramelized sugar, and a hint of yeast. Somewhat earthy.

Mouthfeel- Thin, and somewhat watery for this style. finished dry with a hint of sourness to it.

Drinkability- It's okay. Frankly it really didn'y lend it's tastet to the style, however I'd give it a try again.

The bartender indicated it was a Belgian Red, and offered up that it was at 7% ABV, and that it was brewed with Belgian sugar. He was unable to tell me any other details about the beer.
