look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Aroma - A definite spiced Belgian aroma with a touch of alcohol too.

Appearance - Golden amber with a tan head that sticks around with plenty of carbonation

Taste - Belgian spice upfront but not much sweetness but noth really bitter either. A touch of bitterness at the end. Not something I like.

Notes - This is either a Belgian ruined by hops or an IPA brewed with the wrong yeast.

Serving type: bottle
