3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Pours a transparent amber colored body with thick foamy off-white head. Head subsides quickly and becomes very thin. Decent retention. Lots of lacing left behind in the glass. Pale bock. Doesnít look like a bock or a blonde maibock...has a color similar to dead guy but this one is one dimensional and completely transparent.
S- not to much to pick up. Some grainy malt and hints of hops. Rather boring.
T- not too much here either. The big taste is the malt. Tastes similar to a bland cereal. Hints of hops pop up but not too much. Finish is clean and dry.
P- Medium carbonation and very watery.
O- This beats a macro anyday but is rather bland. Its quite drinkable but not enjoyable. Very unoffensive and thereís nothing to hate about it.
Not sure what style this would fall under. Not belgian-not bock either.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasty! Great head, good color, and a malty, biscuity, savory flavor that really stayed with me. The íherbs and spicesí on the label are a faint presence, just enough to enhance the natural excellence of this beer. Reasonably full-bodied taste, but the finish was somewhat short and I would have liked just a touch more carbonation.

Bottle purchased from Mi Brewing. Pours amber with a light white head. Not much aroma, a low earthiness and carmel. Some butteriness although not unpleasantly high levels, carmel, and nutmeg. Rounded body with light carbonation. Unfortunately not well knit together.

bottle - Pours hazy light amber with a one finger off-white head. The aroma is mild malt and spice. It tastes of sweet malt and spice with a touch of cherries. Decent brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle, 10/22/09
Aroma: Toasted grains, caramel, orange
Appearance: Hazy golden-orange color
Flavor: Malty with a medium sweetness
Palate: Light-medium body, somewhat creamy
This beer was alright. Itís not very exciting, but it is drinkable. It is a little bit on the boring side. You can drink it, it may quench your thirst, but it is not going to excite anyone.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a clear medium gold pour with copper red hues, gives a small off-white head, aromas of bready, caramel malt with faint fruit in the background, some malt sweetness, and hints of yeast, malt and caramel flavors, a touch of spice,
drink starts with some sweetness and ends dry on the palate with a little crackers, a touch of pepper at the finish, a so-so beer.

This was one of the poorest quaility íBelgianís Iíve ever had. Itís a decent beer, but I was shocked that this was considered a belgian vareity. It is easy to drink and it did dissappear the quickest from this mixed case, but thats the best I can say about this beer.
