3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft offering..golden color..belgian recognizable nose..aroma is ok..getting some clove..cinnamon.slight banana citrus profile..mouthfeel is alright..a bit blander than expected on finish..verison sampled was 6%..perhaps a higher abv would have brought out some more of the palate action typically expected from a belgian ale..
