A very nice effort at an Abbey style. An amber body with a faint cream color to the lacey head. A spicey aroma of clove, with a hint of plum. A beer easy to drink and enjoy.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A medium strong and very pleasant sweet bubblegum, curacao, aroma. Very clean though slightly creamy. Yes, there is some coffee and fig and both are bright and appreciated. The body is medium and may feel a bit wet by comparison to the heaviest of this breed. The finish is fairly dry with some fruit sour and not fully dampened hops. A very good show! I’m all about the front end with the better part of the experience coming before or during the first sip. This beer has all that. Dank u wel, Mister Gusler!

Nut brown. Dry, bitter fruity and estery. A nice and complex succesful attempt to make a Belgian style double dark

Nice fruity aroma and taste with pear and liquorice as well. This beer shows some of its alcohol as it warms, but not objectionably. Smooth and tasty.

I second the ’banana nose to the max’ comment. Sweet, somewhat spicy and fruity taste, with less alcohol finish than I expected. Just picked this one up at the local beer store because I didn’t want typical crap. I’m glad I did, and I will do it again, too. A good introduction to this kind of ale, at least for me.

Banana nose to the max. This beer passes for a Belgian without any problem.
