The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a very mellow pale malt scent with spices and a fruity yeast finish. I heard from someone that it is supposed to have the aroma of an old cathedral. The taste is good as well. It has a nice pale malt flavor that boasts of spices. It goes down smooth and finishes a bit tart. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a fine spiced Belgian ale. It has it all: aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel; a good drinker.

Had a bottle, wish it was a full 12 oz.

A...Cloudy amber yellow golden orange with a soft glow when the light hits it. Not much of a head with a delicate pour into the glass. Only a thin ring of bubbles holds to the inside of the glass where the carbonation breaks the surface, as some other sporatic bubbles spring to the center surface.

S...I smell fruit followed by Spices. The fruit smell reminds of homemade apple cake. There are a few spice smells at the end of the waft, the only spice I can put a finger on is clove, which is the last thing I smell.

T...A delicious combination of flavors. The smell seems to match the taste. It starts with a lightly sour, but a straight forward apple. This citrus apple subsides to a strongly spiced peppery clove finish. It seems there might be some other spices in there but I taste clove the most, which reminds of the holidays.

M...Smooth light carbonation feel

O...Overall a stand out beer, and a surprise since I've never heard of it. Great melding of flavors with fruit and spice. A great beer to have anytime, but I would especially like on a cold holiday night around a fire with family and friends.
