On tap. Poured a cloudy copper color with a decent head. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast and caramel. Taste of caramel sweetness, dark fruit, yeast, honey and bit of spice. Subtle bitterness and clean finish with just a bit of lingering sweetness. Moderate body, smooth and tasty. the 8% ABV is quite well hidden. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at Mike’s Grill + Tap. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of yeast, citrus, nuts and some honey. The taste was similar to the aroma with more yeast, citrus, nuts, grain and honey. Good stuff.

Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours a deep murky copper color with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet and estery, with strong Belgian yeast presence, and notes of prunes, baked apples, brown sugar. Taste is also sweet, with spicy yeast, dark fruits, toffee. Light booze. Medium bodied with soft to good carbonation. Overall, ok Belgian ale

Solid belgian ale. A little bitter at the end and a little simple. Booze is fairly well hidden. Like the aluminum bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BD Brum, 8/5/14. Orange/blond pour, offwhite head. Nose of Belgo esters, clovey spice, sweet citrus, light caramel. Tastes moderate sweet light bready caramel malt, moderate bitter spicy hops, light caramel sugary action, lots of sweet, spicy yeast notes. Body is medium full, carbonation is medium. This doesn’t quite hit the spot for me, not dry enough, not light enough to do what other comparable Belgians do. The flavours are all there but not brought together with the subtle elegance of the better examples.
