Bought a sixer of this shortly after it first arrived in AL. I've been putting off reviewing it because i kept hoping it would grow on me. Alas, it has not. This is either my last bottle, or next to last.
Anyway, it has a nice creamy head that leaves some lace down the glass. Nice appearance. Smell is good, nothing to fawn over.
Taste is pleasant, but unremarkable. A bit sweet. Hops are very reserved.
Yeast doesn't taste very Belgian to me. If i was doing a blind tasting on this, i would've guessed English Brown Ale.
Decent and drinkable, but pretty unremarkable. I wish the occasional new beer that slipped into AL like this was something extraordinary, rather than the ordinary such as this.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes od raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a very good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Belgian brown ale. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
