COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, full-bodied Belgian Abbey-style beer. The traditional yeast strain that is used imparts a rich array of spicy and fruit-like flavors. The prominent clove and melon notes are complemented by the sweetness and alcoholic warmth of the beer. The appealing color of glowing orange makes this brew irresistible.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of peach fruit and mildly peppery spice. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is peach, something phenolic, and some "mildly pepper spice". Finishes more dry than not, and the carbolicity stands in for bitter. Actually seems to move towards bitter. Rather light given the 9%. Drinks nicely.
