On tap. Served a dark copper color with fair head and nominal lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, bit of malt and caramel. Taste of dark fruit, bit of malt sweetness and brown sugar. Decent bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body and a bit sugary. Had hoped for something more robust.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 ounce bottle. pours copper with nice carbonation and slight head. Nose is of candied sugar and hops, almost soapy. Muted taste finishing slightly acrid with good mouth feel. This is a beer you would need pepcid with if you drank too many. Slightly disappointing for being labeled a Belgian ale.
