12 oz bottle poured into a Belgian ale glass. ~45 degrees F or so, 10 minutes out of the fridge. Enjoyed over spaghetti with sweet sausage, while catching up on Walking Dead. Picked up for 9.99 for a 12 oz.- 4 pack.

Looks- Settles into an attractive chestnut burgundy with medium carbonation and good head formation, the head is a khaki tan. The last of the bottle pours with what looks to be a small amount of sedimentation. Head dies down at a medium pace, and drinking brings a nice lacing that stays for about 30 seconds.

Nose- Sweet molasses, clove, fresh bread, so much more behind it. An excellent nose, it certainly picks up where words leave off. I definitely recommend serving this in a glass that allows you to enjoy this delectable nose.

Taste and mouthfeel- Sweet fruit: plums, cherries, pears, and more. Bright, sugary molasses, medium bodied, boozy on exhalation. Sweet fruity flavor stands alongside a warming bready flavor. No bitterness to speak of. Just enough carbonation, dangerously drinkable at 8.5% ABV.

Overall- World-class, without a shadow of a doubt. Deliciously fruity without nearing pungency. A score for anyone who loves a good Belgian Ale. Just 30 minutes and it was gone, but I'm certain to be back!
