3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2009 Handpump at Beer Belly.
Nice reddish-copper color. Nice hoppy aroma, with dark fruit, citrus, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Spicy, fruity, with a tingly, prickly, bitter hop finish. Very interesting finish, and good hoppiness for a Belgian style. A great session beer.
