look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Pours golden with white head. Smell is sweet sweet sweet malt and belgian yeast. Taste is sweet and boozy and way unbalanced. Alcohol is present, and if it weren’t so sweet and in need of some other flavor, the booze would be very unwelcomed, but as it is, its a nice departure from the cloying maltiness. Sticky sweet finish that mingled with the yeast give a funny fake sugary nutrasweet flavor. Not good at all. And I’m not getting any of this rye or the hops either, unfortunately. Rich body, medium to soft carbonation. A complete unenjoyable drain for me. I can't remember being more shocked at a beer's high ratings than when I drank this...

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1

12 oz. bottle poured into goblet

L: gold with a little red, clear with minimal off-white head -- almost looks flat. the color and clarity are nice

S: fruity sweet, a bit of wine

T: fruity, sweet, nutty ... almost like peanut butter

F: solid despite looking flat

O: tastes more like an American-made dubbel than a Belgian strong pale, and if I could give this beer a 0 overall, I would because it's possibly the most off-style beer I've had. it is a major letdown because I'd really like a good Belgian strong pale ale right now.

this is my last Saint Arnold beer. no brewery consistently disappoints more than SA -- I could look at this one and tell by that hallmark antiseptic clarity that it would fall short of good. if you're looking for an American-made dubbel, then this might not be bad. if you're looking for a Belgian strong pale, buy Duvel or Matilda or something else because this ain't it.
