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

Added as a single in my mix-six pack at World Market in Round Rock.

Poured a slightly hazy gold, big fluffy white head that took a while to recede...then not much to look at after that.

Liked the smell, familiar Belgian cloves, bubblegum, some biscuity malt.

Taste followed, but did not wow me. This is quite a mellow, smooth beer, however, for a nearly 10 ABV...can be quite dangerous.

I liked this one, but it almost seems like it's boozed up for no particular reason. The taste was a bit blander than i expected, and the high abv alone won't get me to come back for more.

Bought six pack at 29 Package Store Hwy. 29 in Lilburn, Ga.
Glad to always see it there. When I'm in the mood for a Belgian
style high octane I go for this. Straw color a bit cloudy, first sniff smells a bit like a circus. I like the taste and mouth feel but love the kick it has. At this time I am mixing it fifty fifty with Keystone light. Watching my weight and wallet. Thank you Victory..Cheers!
