Big Red Coq, Brewery Vivant, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA

Jason Baldacci, writing in The Chicagoist, took a look at one of the many Belgian-Style beers that’s being brewed in the American Midwest.

Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Brewery Vivant bills their Big Red Coq as a Hoppy Belgo-American Red Ale.

“Not so surprisingly,” writes Baldacci, “it pours a vibrant copper-red color in the glass, and the nose is loaded with a tropical, floral hop bouquet.”

As for the palate, “that hop profile comes to life in the form of bright citrus fruits and earthy lemongrass. While the hops are definitely dominant, there is a solid malt backbone that lends a nice, toasted grain note, along with a hint of toffee and plenty of spicy, Belgian yeast that gives the whole thing a hefty dose of character.”
