750 ml bottle. Deep reddish copper. Clear. Small off-white fine laced head. Spicy nose with Belgian yeast characters. Notes of caramel and a little chocolate. Crisp hoppy bitterness in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An amber brown color with a good head leaving behind a thin satin canopy. Smells of darkfruit with minerals. Medium nectar with ample effers. This brew is uneventful featuring a lot of not much in terms of flavor. Just mildly sweet cornering darkfruit. Worth drinking but I would not pay for this. Thin around the edges, no mid palate and a boring finish. Why do they even make beer like this?

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber colour with a fair amount of head. Aroma of tin, malt, alcohol. Taste is very malty with a hint of grass. Has a watery finish and a planty aftertaste. I imagine this is an attempt at a Bière de Garde of some disposition, but it doesn’t quite work.
