3.7/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On-tap into goblet at Yardhouse downtown Denver
A - a dusky opaque brown/amber/red hue, barely a 1 finger head quickly disappeared to a thin scattered layer 3
S - fruity, toasted malts, mild sweetness, florals, grass 3.5
T - slightly sweet nuts/malts, a flowing structure/flavor throughout the taste, an appealing spicy slightly floral/bitter aftertaste, good balance 4
M - minimal carbonation but what was there were small bubbles and gave a nice smoothness, medium body, light mouth feel 3.5
O - 8% ABV not that much of a factor, a solid good beer but not up to the complexity level I had expected, I would drink it again but I will not seek it out 3.5

Serving type: on-tap

3.79/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours clear, red-brown with a generous sized tan head that soon reduces to a thin and irregular coat. Nonetheless, the glass is nicely sheeted when tipped.

Aroma: dark fruits with a trace of very ripe banana. Lightly spicy.

Flavor: dark fruits with a trace of very ripe bananas and cherries. Faintly spicy.

Feel: A strong point. Medium+ but soft carbonation. Medium-full body. Dry and light at mid-taste.

O: a good Belgian ale but bettered by a good number of competitors. Certainly worth trying.

4.05/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours copper with a one finger light tan head, with decent retention and spotty lacing. the aroma has apples, pears, Belgian yeast, caramel, brown sugar, bananas, and cloves.

The taste is sweet, but the sweetness is not cloying. There is caramel malt, apples, pears, pepper, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, bananas, cloves, dark fruit, and phenols.

Medium bodied with below average carbonation. Easy to drink. Worth trying, and buying again in my opinion.
