Had on tap at the Taphouse on Queensway in Hampton, VA.

Appearance: Served in a chalice, it is a dark amber brown color, with 1 finger tan head, leaves considerable lacing

Smell: Very fruity, reminds me most of sweet grapes and cherries, with some good darker malts

Taste: Very sweet, I would almost consider it a desert beer. It is mostly sweet grapes and cherries, with a good helping of Belgian yeast funk. Very complex and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, very smooth texture

Overall: This was awesome. Had no idea this was even available on tap. Not cheap, but worth it. Will definitely look for in bottles.

A- Nice deep oak color with a nice retention of head, but not as much as a regular Bulgium style beer. But remember this is a Artisanal Belgium Brown Ale.

S- Yeasty with a big fruit and caramel finish. Get a big nose full of this one, it has some great aromas.

T- Dry, Sweet, Fruity, Yeasty, Caramel, with a hint of apple.

M- A balanced carbonated beer with a dry finish.

D- This is a greatly balanced beer that a beginner in Belgium beers would be happy with. Also try out the very intresting Tripple IPA.
