looks to be a belgian red variant, also never heard of a belgian red but hey...

I think the name refers to soltice as it is a festival ale.

Maybe more than you want to know.  But the astro.unl.edu is a pretty cool website for explaining all things astronomy related.

What were your thoughts on this beer? I live 20 minutes from their brewery and find its as good from the bottle as it is on tap. I really enjoy this one.

It was ok.  Quite cloudy, amber colour.  I'd had a couple hoppy IPA's prior so I found it a bit bland in comparison but on it's own I'm sure it would be very enjoyable.  This was on tap in Fargo ND and I think it was fairly fresh.
