3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 bottle. Very dark brown color and a large, tanned head. Aroma is positively Belgian in a spicy, yeasty, very fruity manner. Taste is sweet, fruity, licorice brings in an unexpected level of bitterness. An almost full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is obviously fruity and spicy, however, it is also dry, sour, and seems somewhat unbalanced. Overall, the beer could use a major overhaul and appears to be riding on the positive association that everyone has with its typically Belgian flavors.
