3.23/5 rDev -14.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
11.2 oz bottle. The beer pours a deep golden color with very little head that falls to a few islands over top. There is a ton of chunky business in the brew but otherwise clarity is good and the carbonation is minimal. The aroma is a bit grainy, with a mild raisin sweetness. It gives me the impression of biscuit in the malt character, which is not my favorite aroma. The flavor is mild grainy biscuit with a more mild raisin sweetness that is accentuated with a touch of caramel. I'm not real thrilled with the flavors here. Mouthfeel is light with a very light to absent carbonation. I think the lack of body and carbonation really detracts from the brew. Overall impressions of this one are pretty low. I've had it on tap and in bottle before and it was never my favorite, but this one seems to be falling short of those expectations.

4.06/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.4% abv.
Appearance: This is a very hazy beer with a brownish tan color and a quick fading off white head. A quick swirl is needed to keep some foam on top. Lacing is minimal and very slick.
Smell: Right up front there is a big raisin like fruity sweetness. This is backed up by bready yeast and malt notes.
Taste / Palate: Now on the tongue the bready Belgian yeast notes hop out first. Dark fruit, raisins, plums and apples move in with sweet maltiness. In the middle there is an attempt by the hops to come out and play but the yeast notes and malt notes and now some sweet boozy notes hold out and finish strong. The body feels smooth with lots of fine carbonation. Just right for a big Belgian Ale.
