3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is of toasted malts mostly with some fruits and caramel malts. Flavor is the same with little carbonation. Interesting but I would stick with true Belgians.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy sdeaf. Huge white head on a copper tea colored pour. Thick, foamy lacing. Nose is spicy, tangy, prominent Belgian feel. Pear and other fruits. Flavor is definitely down that same path, with spices, pears, zest, some distant hops, and a nice yeast tang in the finish. Smooth, decent body, light, drinkable, not that spicy in the finish. Enjoyed it.
