3.51/5  rDev -15.2%

Poured bottle into glass. 7% abv

Appearance- Pours a hazy, deep caramel brown color. Massive fluffy head that has a slight but noticeable brown tint.

Smell- Herbal and spicy with aromas of freshly baked bread.

Taste- Sweet flavors up front not unlike that of sugary candy. Fruit-like as well, with notes of plum. Has that belgian phenolic taste from yeast qualities. Roasted malts fade into the back end of the profile with a clean finish that has minimal to no bitterness. Alcohol also in the finish.

Mouthfeel- Heavy in body. The taste from the malt lingers for awile.

Overall- A true Belgian. It is of good quality and is pretty complex. Not outstanding but still smooth.

Pours a deep copper with a beautiful loose,thick beige head that dissipates to a film on the top after a couple of minutes. Apricots, slight clove and bready yeast ride the forefront of the bouquet with a hint of booziness in there somewhere. A long sip led to a smooth, unctuous mouthfeel filled with sweet dried fruit, great unfiltered yeast and a sweetness I can't put my finger on, non bitter chocolate? With an abv. of 7% there is an aftertaste of alcohol but not over powering by any means. A great beer.
