3.75/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A = pours a burnt orange color, bright. Very thick pronounced head that lasts the entire session. This beer is highly carbonated.
S = Malty clove aroma with strong alcohol notes
T = Again cloves with a slight licorice taste. Slight bitterness at the end. Dry finish. I liked this beer much better half way through the glass after a bunch of the carbonation had dissipated.
M = creamy, medium bodied beer

Overall = Pretty good. I like Belgian beers but I'm a bit of a novice at comparing the various brands. So far, there are other Belgian styles that I prefer over this. Chimay blue is a favorite.
