4.78/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

one of the best Belgian Style ales i've had, appearance is a hazy brownish orange, with lots of large bubbles evident in the beer, smell is dark fruit, clove, allspice, and belgian yeast. Taste is plum, banana, yeast, clove, biscuits, and caramel. mouthfeel is a full body, but not overly heavy, carbonation is quite light.
