Dark mahogany color with red hue, hazy; creamy head. The aroma is nice, subtle, with malt, light cellar impression, trace of dark chocolate. Good smooth body, but the flavor is rather simple: caramel, quite sweet, with some sweet liquorice; low bitterness; some candi sugar too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is yeasty, vanilla and corriander. Flavor is fruity to start out then comes some herbal tea and a decent hop backbone. Finish has some honey and spice. I quite liked this one. Had all the fruity, yeasty things you look for in a Belgian but with low alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy orange gold with a 3 finger collapsing whiteish head. There’s a strong citrus, light stone fruit aroma. Backed by some earthiness and yeast/spice. Full bodie - cause of the carb. Flavor is spice/yeast, banana, light stone fruit, touch of barnyard. This is delicious. Obviously very, very underrated. There is a tendency towards cod liver oil towards the finish, but a sophisicated palate welcomes the new.
