3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the milder ales of Belgium--great copper color and a generally pleasant combination of flavors. Served in little 25cl bottles, this is good as a daytime tipple served with a flavorful Belgian lunch, though it’s no match for the heavier-weight ales in the flavor or fun department.
