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.
