LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
This deep red Belgian Ale has a lot going for it! Malty, fruity, and spicy all at once (sweet raisins, licorice). Nice high carbonation. However, the hops in the dry finish are not worthy of a true top rating (4+). Nonetheless, I really like this stuff!
