Dark ruby red, unpleasant aroma. Nothingnotable about taste, funky bitter finish. Not something I would recommend

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste Belgian yeast, dark fruit, caramel. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber in color, light head. Unusually sour for a Belgian. The flavor isn't bad, but it fails to do what it set out to do; it's just not really a true Belgian. Sad.

Tasting notes from 6/21 Joplin Macadoodles Beerfest: Completely average abbey ale in every way. Nothing more or less to say.

alexanderj (3343) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle; poured an auburn color with a frothy white head. Aroma of must, soap, yeast, and plum. A pretty mellow flavor; alcohol plums and a weird finish.

jeremyh70 (781) - Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany color with a finger of fluffy off white head and good lacing. Aroma is a bit sweet with musty fruit and bready grain. Taste is husky grain and slight burnt molasses with some fruit and banana. Hint of clove and astringency. Mouthfeel is watery and fizzy with medium/high carbonation. Malt forward with very little Belgian character. Not a particularly good example of the style.

Terrible. I hate the style too. Thick heavy basement earth malty taste. Fruits. Tropical but not a happy tropical. Just an unpleasant beer

Drank out of the bottle at Flanerys in STL. This didn’t make me smile when it hit my mouth.

Aroma is malts, slightly dull dark fruit and a hint of astringency. The flavor is dark fruit, malts and a really off twang/chemical finish.
