A - Color is golden. Somewhat of a white head that quickly disappears. Very little lacing.
S - Yeast, malt
T - Spices, sour towards the end. Hardly any alcohol taste. Somewhat sweet. Not allot of complexity.
M - Some carbonation, but not allot. Fairly light, very smooth.

Overall I gave it 4.0. Beer is very smooth and quite nice, but not very complex. Seems like a conservative copy of a Belgian. I would buy again but wish the flavor was a little more unique.

Sampling eight now on 8/14/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "CHEERS - BOSTON" handled glass stein.

Pours nice golden yellow in color with about a good half a finger of a white foamy head that settles to just a thick layering around the sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped but that is about it. The aroma is just malts for the most part with a hint of some sweetness, like honey. More going on with the taste with the malt up from followed by some spice, maybe coriander. Finishes with a slight sweet that is a tad dry also. Overall, not really my style of brew.
