look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle

A: Slightly Hazy, Not quite straw yellow, had a dec size head, dissipated pretty quickly. A bit of lacing.

S: Very sweet tartness, (like sweettarts!), distinct "belgian" smell of candy, some frutiness too, not citrus more banana/strawberry.

T: Very sweet maltiness up front, followed by a tart raspberry candy like, some rasins in flavor, little to no hop presence or bitterness. Finishes rather clean.

M: Seems pretty well carbonated, a tad more watery than I would like, ABV isnt overbearing at all so this could sneak up on you easily.

O: Not overly comples or mind blowing, but its got decent flavor. Good intro towards belgian style beers, better options though.
