look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

On-tap at the Foundry Northampton, MA.

A- A mix of deep burnt orange and ruby hues in the goblet after the beer falls from the tap. A white, puffy head to one finger with pretty good retention. A few webs but not much lace beyond that.

S- Quite mild overall for the ABV and style. Spicy Belgian yeast, light to medium candi sugar and caramelized raisins.

T- Mildness here is more welcome than the somewhat weak aroma. Spicy yeast first and foremost with golden raisins, cherry, apple skin, golden and amber candi sugar.

MF- Light end bodied with a certain dryness contributing to it. Very smooth medium high carbonation soothes the palate with a small bite. A bit light.

Candi sugar and spicy yeast profile are the bulk of this intensely smooth 9% Belgian brew. Doesn't even drink nearly like 9% ABV.

Delicious winter ale. A bit on the sweet side but a delicate finishing touch with a nutty/flowery (a bit contradictory, I know) taste.
