3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep red with a small, whispy off white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubble gum, and nice tropical hops. Flavor is big, full bodied, tons of tropical flavors balanced by a mild sweetness. Fair amounts of spice and bread flavors balance out the sweetness. Pretty nice, deceptively light bodied for the heft and style of this brew.
