4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Belgian Beer Shop.com. Hazy amber. The head is thick and off white. Leaves a very nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is filled with fruits. It’s sweet, vinous and yeasty. A very intense smell. The taste is very complex with licorice, spices, malts and yeast. The mouthfeel is very full and rich. A very long medium bitter finish. This is one of my all time favorites.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Bulldog Uptown. Name brand glass. Beautiful deep plum, almost brown color. Lacing is impressive. Smell reminiscent of bubble gum, dark fruit, and some oak elements. Taste follows suit with plum and raisin qualities. Sweetness prevails but end reminds you there are still traditional beer elements. Absolutely love the end of this one. Order this immediately.

A very average beer for a belgian ale. There are alot better beers out there these days. Somewhat boring beer. Thin fading head. On draft. Light aroma.
