Sharp Hop aroma from the neck. Pours a bit cloudy dark amber. Actually less red than the Der Blokken Black. Thin off-white head, but it stays around for quite a while. 3 Minutes and there’s still a thin head on it. Not getting much aroma to speak of. Some sour fruit, grassy hops. Well carbonated with a nice malt forward flavor. Now I am getting pine notes in the aroma. Decent hop balance. This really is a pretty good red, although I don’t drink many of those. I like the mouthfeel too. It’s really got some body. Nice legs on the glass, and the head is still there! Tasted from the bottle @ 58F.
