another great belgian from dicks. dark brown in color. medium thick with flavors of malt and dark candy sugar. lots of hop spice and moderate bitterness. definitely balanced towards the sweet side - very true to the style. very good.

Found this in the back room at Market of Choice. Smells kind of musty, and pours a grainy light toffeeish orange. KInd of malty and fruit forward, with a nice little bit of chalky spiciness. Not bad, but not a favorite.

underattenuated and off grain notes. Little head retention. Some cloying over ripe fruit and mild spice. Acidic and dms finish. not enjoyable.

750 ml bottle capped with a plastic cork that was a pain in the ass to get out. Poured a darker, hazy brown color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of yeast, sugar, and a little fruity. Lightly sweet with an almost sour finish to it. It wasn’t bad but also, nothing too special.

Murky orange. Wispy head. Nose of dark fruit- and barley cereal with breast milk (I know, I have smelled this alot lately). NIce body- feels good on the tomgue. Slight sweetness expected from the style. Keeps a nice sting on the tomgue.

Not overly alcoholic, nicely restrained. Good aroma with complex fruits, suggesting plum, black cherry, and raspberry. Light, frothy, well rounded with yeast, fruits, and maltiness. Mild to moderate in flavors. A credit to Dick’s.

Bottle. Smells like juicy fruit gum and athelete’s foot (not the shoe store). Taste is very mild and earthy. Slightly sweet.
