3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber pour produces a medium dark caramel brown color with little bit of head...nose does have that angostura bittery aroma mixed in with some cherry as well..mouthfeel is kind of strange with some of the orange producing citrus tang but doesn’t seem to go well with whatever type of belgian ale they were going for here...not really digging this one very much...not real complex offering...
