3.25/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours out a dark brown with a one finger head that disappears rather quickly. I can't tell anything along the line of smell because of allergies. This is the worst time of year for me to be reviewing anything, lol. The taste doesn't really have the flavor intensity I would like for a beer at this price level. The taste is well balanced, but I am having trouble finding the honey advertised on the back of the label. There is a sort of mapel taste upfront, maybe that's what they were talking about. The spices from the belgian yeast is there, just not very strong. The mouthfeel is way way way too carbonated. So much so that it almost takes away from the flavor. It definatly takes a notch off drinkability.

Serving type: bottle
