3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells spicy and sweet, of Belgian like yeast. Taste is full flavored, sweet Belgian yeast almost like a full flavored, stronger saison. Some spice flavors but not too much. Pretty well balanced overall and pretty enjoyable. Carbonation does fast and it tastes flat and has a bit of an odd aftertaste. Dropping rating a bit due to that.
