2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle : Pours a hazy sweet tea brown. Very carbonated with bubbles. Hardly any head to speak off. Aroma on the other hand is very complex and robust. Slight floral hops and basement aroma. Also some alcohol, banana, and other mixed smells. Light on the tounge with a medium sweet taste. Not much of an aftertaste. Beer is ok, but this style isn’t for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-8-12 -
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance - Served a clear amber colored beer with a small white cap. The small head faded rather fast to leave some decent lacing.
Smell – The nose was heavy of sweet caramel and light fruit smells. The fruit is heaviest of a pear aroma, but there are other lighter notes of peach and apple as well.
Taste – The taste begins with some of the sweet caramel and fruit that were detected in the nose, with a bready base that supports the sweeter flavors quite well. A very light funky and yeasty flavor then start to work their way into the taste profile. As this occurs, the sweetness dwindles some and the taste gets slightly drier. In the end the beer leaves a semi-sweet fruity and lightly tart taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is much the same.
Overall – A nice tasty brew that while even at 10 % is very easy to drink. Definitely one to give a go to.

Solid beer. I like it. It’s good. It is beer. It is Belgian. It is wet. It is carbonated. It had a head. It was a bottle from 2009 that I bought in 2014 after a sunny but windy and chilly darklord day.
