As far as I can tell this is the first of it's kind. I've seen Belgain Red beers, I've seen smoked, but never a smoked Belgain Red. So... I'd call it a winner!

Slightly malty Red Ale with great Smoke aroma and flavor, but not over powering. The Belgain yeast add their own distinct character to the beer. Fermented a little warmer than I'd like it lead to it being a little estery, but the smoke prevented it from being overpowering. Better temp control will most likely give this beer a cleaner finish and let the smoke stand alone with the malty back of the red ale.

will definitely brew this one again, more than likely as an all grain version.
