2.96/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Clear amber with a moderate head and some lacing.

S - The added sugars give it almost an adjunct-like smell.

T - Some malt and caramel with sweet overtones.

M - Decent enough with a good carbonation level.

O - Not what I expected from anything with the name "Belgian" on the label. An OK beer, but closer to a Michelob Amber Bock than anything I have ever had labeled Belgian.

It seems silly to be drinking Winter beers on the fourth day of Summer 2014, but such is the nature of my backlog. I am anxious to reduce some of these beers so that I may return to what really matters - The CANQuest (TM), but nothing, no trades, no purchases, nada, until I get caught up.

From the bottle: "This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish."; "We crafted our single-style abbey ale with select roasted malts, a hint of Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich, caramel flavor and a wonderfully smooth toffee finish. It's perfect for those chilly winter days."; "Taste Responsibly".

I was anxious to get started with this one, so I employed a heavy hand in terms of the pour, resulting in a pretty pseudo-cascade. This settled into just over two fingers of dense, tawny head with good retention. "Copper" was exactly the word for the color on this one (SRM = > 17, < 22)! The clarity was button-bright and I was getting excited to try it. Nose had a light caramel quality, which was disappointing, since I expected more. Mouthfeel was medium and the flavor was definitely caramel, but still kind of muted, given their verbiage on the label. Likewise, I agreed with their calling the finish "toffee". In fact, I would say that the overall flavor was more toffee than caramel anyway. Call the finish semi-sweet as it was not outright sweet and just about as much as this hophead can tolerate. Once again, tis would be much more apropriate during the colder months, but c'est la guerre!
