Verhaeghe ‘Barbe’ Ruby Biere

Verhaeghe ‘Barbe’ Ruby Biere: 3.5 – If you had told.me this was juice I would believe you I get no beer or even alcohol or if you want that sure but no for me. I see that some places call this a fruit beer, and for me it was described as just a Red Ale – which I think is a basis for it; however that doesn’t change my score because even I get a fruit beer, I want a fruit beer.

Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red Ale

Oskar Blues Goodnight: 8.5 – This was listed for high octane and it’s a bit more alcoholic, but this solves the issues where some reds are a bit too tart. This though has gravitas, and quite frankly it’s fuckin delicious. I got this at a bar, and quite frankly I’m glad that we do this site. I feel like others would see the can, and dismiss it out of hand –  which is sad for who great the beer is.

Editor’s Note: So this is not a challenge post. We are still doing the challenge, but having passed the halfway point the finds are now much harder.

Maine Beer Company Red Wheelbarrow

Maine Beer Company Red Wheelbarrow: 4.0 – Now we typically have liked Maine Beer Company’s beers (even went for a tour once), but this promised to give me a Red Ale, but the MBC’s hop-forward taste, and it’s awful. I honestly could not finish it, and that’s truly sad, not so much for them, but for me.
