A caramel malty taste that is slightly sweet. A bit thin but overall a very good ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber from the bottle. Roasty caramel notes in the nose, khaki head. Flavor is carries some of those caramel notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Massive tan head due to an over-aggressive pour by me. Light brown body. Sweet caramel nose with a touch of soapy yeast. Toffee, caramel, mostly what you’d expect from a generic version of an abbey. Metallic afterbite. Medium body and carbonation. I didn’t have high expectations of this to begin with, so no surprise here. Like others have mentioned; not great, but not too bad either. Drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Meh. Tastes like a sweeter Blue Moon White Belgian to me. Nothing special here. Not bad, but not great either. Could be more yeasty or have more malt. Kind of artificially sweet in a way.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottled - I don’t know if I’d call this a Belgian ale but with that being said, it’s not half bad. Nice amber color and pretty good flavor - better than a regular Blue Moon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark copper color with a thin beige head. Good balance of sweet, bitter, and alcohol. Nice caramel/toffee aroma alongside roasted malt.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz bottle from a sampler pack. Flavor is water mixed with fairly pleasant malt, some odd collection of spices, and caramelized wheat. More of a milk chocolate finish than toffee. However, overwhelmingly very wet and bland. Not offensive, but not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fresh bottle marked APR1315, a twist-off. Nose dusty caramel and a little cracker, grainy, seems pretty dry, has some Sam Adam’s like house flavor. Touch of fusel and candyish esters from the yeast. Pours deep, dark brown-red, like a Dubbel, but thinner, with a noisy and fizzy beige head. Taste is sweet and fruity, not sugary, but the alcohol is uncontrolled and enhances the sweet-raw flavor. Overripe fruit, somewhat grainy with strong alcohol warmth, lightly airy yeast character, and phenols and esters that are turned up. Sticky, lightly oily medium body, drinks pleasantly when you go quickly, sort of like a cordial, otherwise nah, brah.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Rite Aid: Aroma is faint and almost non- existent but some sweet malt are there. The flavor is bland with the primary flavor being a sweet base of syrupy malts and a minor note of cheap artificial Belgian yeast. Appearance was a solid mahogany brown with tiny amount of foam. Taste watered down for being a Belgian beer style but the alcohol warmth the beer gives off does seem fitting.
