A: Dark reddish-brown in color with an off-white 2-finger head.
S: Some darkish fruits, but nothing too pungent. A belgian beer, to be sure, with some booziness in the back. I expected more, quite frankly.
T: A decent mix of light and dark fruits, some fig and light molasses. More bitter than I prefer in my belgians.
M: Thin, well-carbonated, and extremely dry. And there is a lingering bitterness in the finish.
O: Definitely not my favorite BSDA. Too bitter, too dry, and too thin. This brew pales in comparison to Trois Pistoles, for example. At this price, probably not something I'd try again.
