3.9/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured out of a can into a Duvel Snifter
Poured aggressively yielded a 2-3 finger white head on a murky golden hue. Some belgian lace remains on the side of the glass.
Honeyed bread comes to mind along with some apple and pair. Not to much in the aroma.
Fairly sweet, but not cloying. Some fruity notes along with sweetened bread. Some candy sugar has not been attenuated and adds to at character of the beer.Finishes with a hint of hop bitterness.
Full chewy mouthfeel. Very rich for the style with good carbonation.
A good beer from New England Brewing. I am glad to have purchased this beer however I will take my time to revisit it.

3.38/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from can into my Unibroue tulip.cloudy straw color with requisite thick airy head. Not much on the nose. Some light stone fruit, a bit of funk, but nothing sharp.
Taste is slow to develop. Seems bland at first, but that sharp hit comes later.

This is a good beer, but I'll take a Duvel or Matilda anyway.

Massachusetts

3.99/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz. can into a tulip glass

A - A hazy yellow body with a foamy white head.

S - Yeasty odors dominate the nose - I pick up coriander, clove, and lemongrass.

T - Fruity and spicy esters are the first things to hit the tastebuds. Pear, banana, allspice, and even a bit of bubblegum are in the mix. Then comes a Belgian sugar cookie sweetness. The finish is fairly dry with a touch of acrid lemongrass and clove.

M - A fairly glutinous mouthfeel accompanied by a foamy carbonation.

O - Worth picking up if you visit the Constitution State. Humerous artwork on the cans will entertain party guests, too.
