3.86/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Trappist Westvleteren XII glass
From: Bine & Vine Bottleshop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $8.99
Purchased: May 28, 2014
Consumed: May 30, 2014
Misc.: Bottled on March 20, 2014

Poured a golden, straw, hazy color with one finger of grayish white lacing that thinned fairly quickly. Tons of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass up to the top. Good amount of layered spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top of the glass.

Smelled caramel, sour fruit, apple, grape, tropical notes, kiwi, fruity aromas, grassy notes, cloves and banana chips.

Tasted pretty close to the smell, getting sour fruit, apple, kiwi, green grape, dried banana chops, cloves, tropical notes, light grape juice and fruity notes.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, astringent finish.

A decent Belgian, but nothing spectacular.

Draft pour at Duckworth's, Huntersville North Cackalacky.

Pours much lighter than I expected, looks like a pils in the glass, with minimal snow-white head and lacing. The nose is underwhelming, bit soapy and bready and the taste is similar. The alcohol is very well hidden and the beer is quite drinkable. I'm baffled why this brew would serve as their 20th Anniversary offering.

Serving type: on-tap
