look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a gold, clear colour. Head is overly generous in the pour but good integrity, small off-white bubbly foam.

Smells tart, fairly funky. Belgian phenols with citric twang, slight soapy character, some barnyard. Bit stale as well, could use a bit more fresh tartness. Nice, though.

Taste is a lot sweeter than expected. Notes of vanilla and nutmeg upfront, gets caramel toffee midway, before finish is slightly boozey with a touch of honey and cherry medicine. Some orange citrus and Earl Grey notes. Definitely missing that slight Belgian edge promised on the nose.

Smooth, foamy, maybe a touch on the thin side but really very decent. Not enough flavours I really like, although the balance overall is fairly decent.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The beer pours a decent amount of white and bubbly head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a clear dark copper that looks very nice but does not quite seem to match the style. The beer leaves some lacing on the glass. The beer has a very fruity and herbal smell. The fruit smell is very tropical with hints of lime and bits of banana and strawberry. There also bready yeast notes. The beer taste is similar to the smell. The same tropical fruit notes such as lime, banana, and strawberry mixed with bready yeast. The taste also has a slight hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel has biting carbonation and smooth feel. Overall, a decent beer.
