3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle with the cap and neck dipped in yellow wax. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma of honey, citrus, corn, Sweet Tarts candy, and caramel malt. Taste is honey and citrus up front with a nicely balanced caramel malt backbone. Mildly sweet with a noticeable Belgian yeast taste that is surprisingly not dominant. Sweet, quick finish of honey and caramel. Light bodied, slick texture, average carbonation. Overall this is quite tasty! I like that the honey and malt both come through a little stronger than the Belgian yeast, which is generally dominant in these types of beers. Very good and well done!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Waxed bottle top. Kinda cute silly drawing on label. Foamy head on a green-gold pour. Aroma is yeasty and a touch pissy, with a sweet undercurrent. Tastes as much like a sweet lager as like an abbey ale. OK but not a great take on the style.

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, slight vanilla, some red fruit, touch of yeast, slight spice. Taste was a mix of bread, toast, caramel, some spice into a bit of fruit, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy.

A lighter Belgian, but a nice one. Belgian yeast notes are subdued. But overall, this is very flavorful.

650ml yellow waxed bottle. The name doesn’t really make sense, I’ sure others have pointed that out. It is is quite pale and golden abv considering. Strong belgian flavor, heavy raisin, low body, its okay.
