look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz can poured into pilsener glass.

A - Pours a light brownish amber with a fair amount of haze. A 2-finger head appeared after an average pour. A more aggressive pour would've added more I'm sure, as there was lot's of carbonation visible.

S - Typical for a Belgian ale, dark fruits up front. Also small hints of banana. Another aroma was very prevalent, but hard to describe. I'd say a combination if dark cake and dirt. Weird, but very pleasant. Great smelling beer.

T - The various Belgian ale's are not among my favorite styles. Prior to this, the only brews of those styles I can remember really liking were Trois Pistoles and Maudite. This stuff though, ranks up there. Not as much going on in the taste as the aroma, but it tasted pretty good. Not as much dark fruit as many (which is a GOOD thing for my tastes), and lot's of malt. I was shocked to find out this beer was 9% ABV, I didn't detect alcohol in the slightest.

F - Extremely refreshing. Tasted great while being easy on the throat, and dare I say sessionable! Dangerous beer, as it's 9% ABV, and as I said, I couldn't detect the booze at all.

O - Good beer. Not my favorite style, but this is a great representation. Great flavor and aroma, and very drinkable. I wouldn't want to kill one of the few Belgian Ale's I like by drinking it too often (as they aren't among my favorite styles), but I will certainly grab a few cans of this stuff every so often from now on.
