A- A murky, orange brown with a finger thick creamy white head. It does have a nice crystal ball effect.

S- Grape soda, pepper, musty, and fruity. Very unique, aromatic, and hard to describe.

T- Same as the aroma but with a huge emphasis on the grape soda flavor. Sweet, but not overly so. The alcohol is hidden well. Complex and enjoyable.

M- Ever so slightly metallic. Overall, it is very smooth with a nice level of carbonation.

D- A complex, enjoyable beer. The alcohol is well hidden. Overall, this is decent, but not the stand out from this brewery.

Poured into my Duvel tulip the beer is a muddy cinnamon brown. Slightly cloudy. The gold tinted head reaches four fingers but fades almost instantly leaving not a spec of lace.

The aroma is sweet candied fruit and sugar sprinkled white toast. Light cinnamon, roast nuts and just a tiny bit pf tart apple.

The flavor is similar to the nose. Lots of candied fruit and cinnamon raisin toast. Tiny bits of chocolate, nuts, yeast and saltine crackers.

Medium body with a good amount of carbonation.

Overall a nice easy drinker. No mistaking this one for it's bigger and bolder brothers. Solid beer none the less.

Pours straight up brown, off-white head starts out small and fizzy but numerous carbonation bubbles keep it alive and a little fluffier over time. TONS of sediment floating around in this thing. Smell is fruits and yeast. Taste is sort of tart, I'm tasting mostly lighter fruit with some dark fruit as well. I think this tastes more like a Belgian pale than a dark ale. Someone in another review said "musty raisins", I think that hits the nail on the head. Lots of Belgian yeast of course and a little warming alcohol. Last few sips are thick with yeast, looks like dirt at the bottom of the glass. I enjoyed it, but I'm hoping for more with the 8.
