2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber with a long lasting thick head cover and curtains of lace. Taste starts with malt, but it barely gets started before it is overtaken by raisins and sour apples. These carry right through to the finish. The beer seems fresh with good carbonation, but this is more a pomme than an abbey ale. Good stuff if cider is your thing, but that would be a different review.

In a can! A fruity smell, a great amber pour. A great blend of fruits and hops! Great beer!

This beer comes in a 16 oz can, much like a Guinness Draft can. There was no nitrogen widget, mind you, and the beer was not similar to Guinness, so I probably shouldn’t have brought it up. Anyhoo, a mahogany pour with a modest creamy head. This was sort of an Americanized Belgian ale to me since it seemed to have some bitterness or dryness more akin to a pale ale (American). It was good, though. Worth a try. I would have preferred more abbeyness, if you’re picking up what I’m putting down.

On tap at the brewpub. Flavor is malty and a bit boozy with notes of raison. Simple flavor profile for an Abbey ale. Nothing offensive but also nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma brings light spicy incense and Belgian sweet malty yeast notes. The raisins and pours described come through for sure on the aroma. Pours mahogany in color with a ton of bubbles. The flavor is malty, with light caramel and fruity fig notes on a smooth medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall Boy, thanks manny57. Pours like cola with adequate carbonation but not much of a head. Nose is fruity and spicey, some belgian yeasty esters, dark fruits, pear, apple., very nice. Flavor is much more bittter and much drier than expected. Usually I like drier beers over sweet beers but this just seems out of place, especially considering the aroma.

This poured a semi cloudy darker red color with a beige head. Aroma was of some sweter candy suagr, some darker fruits, such as plums and figs, and some brown sugar. Flavor was much the same. Spicier and drier than was expecting from the aroma. Mainly yeasty spicenss, and plums. Solid belgian offering.
