Beer Profile: Biere du Boucanier

Profiled by Ken Carman

This is a Flemish Red Ale, with lots of foam; both visual and on the tongue. It is red; as advertised, and both slightly sour, slightly sweet: as expected. There seems to be a light caramel malt sense here. Another 7% “and you’d never know it” beer. Not quite as complex as the style guidelines call for aroma-wise, but it is on the light side taste-wise.. Could use more aroma; just a light sweet fruitiness to the nose. It is red, though not quite as “deep” red as required. Not a perfect example, but enjoyable.
