For the price I paid and the number of outstanding ratings I was expecting a near life changing experience; what I got was a decent enough beer but nothing particularly stunning. Poured out a bright amber with a good thick pure white head that demonstrated excellent head retention. The smell was that of cloves with some earthiness. The taste was OK with hints of spiciness and fruitiness typical of a Belgian style, but there was very little to set it apart from any other beer of this style. The finish was actually quite plain. The mouth feel was decent enough but the carbonation level was a tad on the high side.

Overall I would much prefer a Chimay to this one especially since either one will set you back a few extra bucks. Decent enough but just not that special.
