Tasted on tap.. Great color, dark red/burgundy. Not much head. Fairly strong Belgian taste upfront but does fast & is left without anything in the aftertaste. Meh.

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.

Sample @ Oskar Blues in Asheville during RBWG. Hazy amber with a small head. Loads of active Belgian yeast on the nose. Fruity esters dominate. The taste has some new world hops. Mild cantaloupe and citrus fruits. Somewhat bitter, mildly sweet. Medium body, very active carbonation. Not my thing, but decent.

Keg at brewdog Aberdeen. Atoms is candied berries, Belgian yeast and honey malt. Some plasticy phenols. Nice rich red amber coloured pour with halo of off white head.
