3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Fruity and a faintly floral
Appearance: Gorgrous shining deep Amber pours with a small head which dissipated quickly
Flavor: Sweet, a little like wine with a nice round malt flavor, seemed a little wanting for me.
Palate: Medium bodied, slightly long in the finish with malty flavors
Overall: I like this abbey style ale, but I am not too crazy about it...
