3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of a typical Belgian or Belgian styled beer. Color was a cloudy dark amber with two fingers of a tan head. Tastes of figs, light clove, raisins and oak. Palate is medium bodied and the alcohol is very present, a tad to carbonated for my liking. A very tasty and drinkable beer. I think I had it a bit to cold but as it warmed it was much better. I’d drink it at about 60-65 myself. The temperature brings out the complexities.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Very nice fruity aroma and a tuch of chocolate. Lingering light brown head. Clear amber color. A hard caramell taste and a big bitterness without any balancing sweetness makes it unbalanced. Lacks a bit of body and sparkle.

I’m a can. Delicious! Full flavor but not too heavy. Tastes of figs and cinnamon. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Very smooth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham, WA
Dark amber to brown color, hazy, with small fizzy head, not persistent. There is a mild aroma of sweet candi caramel and some Ale yeast and relative fruity touch. Correct body strength; caramel flavor, candi sugar, lean mouthfeel, moderate sweetness; there is an unfortunate impression of sweet liquorice and vegetables; it has relatively low bitterness.
Once again, an American/Belgian boring-ish beer.

Can to wide mouth mason jar. Pours a cloudy amber / brown with a sparse tan head. Good lacing, and a heavy mouthfeel. Flavors of fruit, cider, malt and cloves present. Probably not a traditional belgian, but I think it’s pretty good.
