This one is a bit more subtle than most in the Belgian style.

The end of the taste brings a light flavor of cloves and coriander, and fruit comes through as well. It's a bit on the dry end for this style... The subtlety goes a long way. It's less sweet and less flavorful overall than the Abbaddon that Fitger's had earlier this year.

A-hazy tan/golden color...little head but it is from a growler so no deduction.

S-Fruity....pears and apples...a nice spicy pepper dimension....excellent aroma

T-Nice tasting beer...fruity (apples and pears again) and spicy...nice balancing act between the sweeter malt notes and the spicy pepper, alcohol, and hop notes...

M-Medium bodied...not a full fledged sipper..could be dangerous to toss a growler of this at someone who doesn't understand the strength of this beer...it drinks very easy...ABV wasn't listed on-line and someone got this growler for me so I don't know the ABV but I'm guessing 8-9%..

D-Almost dangerously drinkable...tastes like it could be from Belgium...very well made and very enjoyable to drink...
