3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into a stemmed snifter glass on Christmas Eve, thanks Gary! Amber colour, spritzy off-white foam, lasting with a little lace. Grainy, caramelly, faint noble-ish hoppy bittering balance. Obvious Belgian yeast traits: ripe fruity esters, black pepper, clove. Medium body, strong carbonation, slight acidity, some residual sticky sweetness, I prefer a drier finish. Overall: a fairly true-to-style Belgian ale, tasty enough but unmemorable.

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.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Terrible. I hate the style too. Thick heavy basement earth malty taste. Fruits. Tropical but not a happy tropical. Just an unpleasant beer
