APPEARANCE: dark golden color.

OVERALL: this is a good beer, solid beer but nothing too special. There are probably better Belgian ales, but this is a solid beer to at least try once.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "enjoy before date" December 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, dark golden color with one finger off-white head that dissipated quickly until a thin broken layer of bubbles remained, medium carbonation, there was a small amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: pepper, pears, caramel, funky Belgian yeast.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, pepper, pears, sweet caramel, some nice Belgian funk, there is not much of a hop profile present, the alcohol 4.3% is imperceptible.

PALATE: this is a lighter bodied ale for the style, medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good beer but nothing to write home about, it has a lower alcohol content for the style, which is appealing to me but, there are better Belgian ales so I would probably not seek this one out again.
