4.72/5  rDev +17.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Paid around $2 for the single...

The beer pours a light amber/brown base with a medium head that barely lasts; however nice head retention but limited lacing, interesting. The smell is a blast of fruit, maybe a mix of five or six (pear, banana, orange, lemon, watermelon?), it is very unique and smells healthy!

The taste is as unique as the smell but that touch of alcohol knocks it down from perfect. So smooth on the palette and this beer is the session beer if like that fruit aftertaste.

Final Thought: Mr. Original, a diverse fruit flavor in a Belgian strong is quite a beer!
