3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel and toasty malts in the light sweet aroma. Clear amber body roped by a decent and lasting off white head that leaves some lace. Moderate bitterness offers the caramel and nutty malt qualities. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I don’t know if I’d consider anything to be Belgian-style about this beer but it is fairly drinkable. Sampled on tap at the Canucks game at Rogers Arena in Jan-12.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pretty, rose-tinged amber with small, chunky off-white head.
Nose offers mild floral and cherry notes to complement yeast. Palate adds caramel, biscuit and a hint of spice.
The body is light and thin, but still manages to be buttery. The bitterness is well controlled, adding a slight edge to the mellow malt in a Belge Speciale style.
It comes bit short of its Belgian counterparts, and Americans looking for "big" beer should look elsewhere. But as a gentle, balanced brew, it’s woth considering.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Uninspiring aroma. Flat white head that dissolves into white thick lace. Amber pour. Roasted malt is the most prominent flavor. Nice bitterness on the palate. Somewhat subpar for stanley park but still a decent beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent amber ale. Has decent caramel malt notes and a clean finish as the bottle indicates. Drinkable if not terribly original.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was mild and the head was short lived for a "Belgian". However the taste and palate (other then the lack of significant carbonation) was very pleasant, what one might expect from a Belgian single. I bought two 6 packs last year and then it disappeared here in Saskatchewan. When I came across it on a recent trip to Edmonton I bought some more because it is a little different from other beers.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks kind of flat. Not much head on the amber pour. Sweet caramel, roasted malt aromas. Kind of thin and watery. Malty taste leads to slight bitter finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
8 oz draught at Beer Revolution. Clear amber pour with a bubbly white head. Not at all what was expected. Super floral, caramelly, sweet. No hop character to speak of. Sticky sweet mess of an amber
