3.86/5 rDev +11.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A-hazy dark copper color with an off white head that leaves a lace
S-caramel malt, yeasty, and some spice
T-spice, roasted malt, and a metallic taste. The metallic taste stays with you til the end. Later in the glass the hop flavor comes in.
M-light body and low carbonation
O-my last Saint Arnold's until I go back to Texas. I will pick up some more while I am there. This beer is much better as the it gets warmer, and I will note that and make sure I do that the next glass I have.

12 ounce draft pour into a shaker glass. 6% ABV.
Appearance: Brilliant red mahogany. Absolutely no head (3/5).
Aroma: Very light aromas. I get a touch of brown sugar and a suggestion of cider. Almost like there’s a baked apple on the other side of the room. Very appropriate for the season (3.25/5).
Taste: It’s sweet, but doesn’t get cloying. I get notes of caramel apples and deeply roasted malt (3.25/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation (3/5).
Overall: I don’t regret consuming this beer, but I’m not sure I would actively seek out another pint of it. It’s sweet, cidery, and roasty like a good Belgian Pale Ale should be. I would have liked to have seen a little more flavor and aroma contribution from the hops, and a little more lively carbonation, but it’s certainly not poorly made. Perfectly average, I guess (3/5).
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle dated 1/4/2013 into a tulip glass. One finger foamy head quickly settles down to a small ring. Color is copper with tiny streams of bubbles coming up.
Smells like a Belgian, very yeasty but not much character. Maybe a hint of metallic.
Flavor is good but not great. Again, not much character. I realize this is not a Trippel, bit it still lacks something. Little bit of funk on the finish is nice.
Mouth feel seems about right, a little thin. Still, refreshing and very drinkable.
