The Belgian Red style usually contains a level of sourness that this example does not have. It does have some fruity notes and a fi rm Belgian character. The aroma has some sweet, candy-like cherry features along with a faint farmhouse nose. It pours a brilliantly clear dark copper, with reddish highlights. Pepper and a slight smokiness cut through the somewhat sweet candy-like malt flavors and a fi rm bitter finish keeps the beer from coming across as cloying. The crisp finish provides a very nice quenchability to the beer. All of the flavors come across as bright and clean.
