Sampled @ the Springfield, PA location. Candi Sugar dominates this Belgian Ale. Beer was on the flat side but had a nice crimson color. Enjoyable Belgian Ale, I did not expect John Harvard’s to have it in its line-up.

Springfield... Poured a hazy copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, dried fruits, clove, banana, and cherries, with light roastiness. Aroma was very dubbelish. Herbal taste of dark fruits, yeast and alcohol was barely noticed. Slick mouthfeel. Could have been more flavorful.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Springfield, PA. Darkish copper colored, with no head - probably poured like that on purpose. Served inappropriately at about 40 deg F. This beer was cold. It tasted fine at that temp but I had to let it warm up for awhile. It was worth the wait, as a very interesting and complex character developed. Very phenolic and funky - with a strong ester of bubblegum. Also a little clove or some kind of spice. Strong but not overwhelming at all. Surpisingly easy to drink.
