I’m so torn on this beer. On the one hand, it’s a perfectly good pseudo-IPA with some general hop aroma and bitterness. On the other hand, it tastes absolutely nothing whatsoever like a Belgian double, which is how it’s billed on the packaging. Good if you like hops, disappointing if you’re looking for an Abbey ale!

Had a sample me over at Dimitri’s Hooker Haus in Kemah .. . Pours a dark hazy yellow Amber .. Nice simple foam .. . Belgian yeast, medicine are the main players .. Solid mouth, depressing finish .. Didn’t do it for me, but this leg has been on the wall for a few months so maybe that is playing a part .. . I get to cut out stickers at work today!

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber red with medium sudsy off-white head. The nose is also fairly un-belgian - grapefruit citrus, caramel malt, some tropical fruits. The hops dominate, with the belgian yeast phenols and esters lacking. The taste is very IPA-like - the citrus and tropical fruits and piney hop bitterness are front and centre, backed up by a strong malt backbone, slight banana. Medium bodied. Way off style as a belgian ale but acceptable as an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast with date in the background. Head is small, fizzy, light beige with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear copper. Palate is moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry finish. A Belgian Strong Ale? Okay, maybe, along with a lot of American Pale Ale influence.
