Not as bad as I was expecting really. I wish the nose on this was more fragrant. I can smell some weak apple, fig and raisin along with some spice, but something is just a bit off with the aroma. Taste is pleasant if not all that complex. Unlike some other "Begian" style ales I’ve had it’s not too sweet, just rather bland. I guess if it says Belgian on the label I expect to be bowled over with flavor and that wasn’t the case with this beer.

Medium brown with small head. Fruity aroma almost like a Belgian. A little like medicine.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Moderate toasted and breadiness in the aroma and taste. A run-of-the-mill, but still good, amber.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle I picked up at Total Wine McLean pours a murky, copper amber with a ring of white head that faded fast. Nose has a lot of malt, sticky caramel, some toast, a little biscuit, a little bit of raisin, some mild orange too. Flavor is a bit surprising because it hits with a fair amount of candy sugar and Belgian-esque yeast character, some bubblegum, a little anise, caramel, ripe banana, some root veg. Spritzy finish. Old bottle? Bad bottle? Just didn’t seem right.

pours hazy if not cloudy medium dark golden orange with a small light beige orange, little retention and lacing. spicy and fruity belgian yeast (!), almost off-rotten-fruits, peppery sweetish caramel and candied nuts, toasted specialy malts, some sweetness - brown sugar, metal, slightly ashy too. low carbonation, light body - oily, semi-sweet and spicy-metallic finish. average american belgian amber at best.

This beer was a very typical amber ale. Not much too it. The pour had a good color with a foamy head. Caramel and sugar in the nose and flavor.

12oz bottle to dark horse shaker. Malty biscuity flavor. Strange peppery finish from the yeast I assume.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, caramel, some mild earthy and citrus hops, some sweetness. This is not a style that really excites me, but this is not as good as most of their beers.
