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

Poured a brownish body with massive head and lace patches on top of classic Belgian aroma of yeast, some citric orange notes, some dark fruits like raisins/figs and touch of sugary sweetness. I like this beer and it's a good representation of the style with simple hints of dark fruits, a softness in the light to medium body thanks to yeast, actually a little sweeter than usual (minor chocolate notes?) and finishes crisp with a touch of hops. That being said, I would consider this a "beginner" beer for those who haven't had this style before b/c it's not complex and hence not a favorite of mine.

4.06/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

750ml bottle, corked. Poured into a Tripel Karmaliet tulip. Served at 52F.

A: Off-white/tan head, size depends on pour. Body is a brownish-ruby, some light passes through. The head diminishes in short order, with almost no lacing.

S: Smells very organic, like wet grass, with a distinct caramel malts undertone. The Belgian yeast is clearly present in the aroma. Some note of the alcohol.

T: Sweet maltiness up front, finishes with a roasted malt character. Dark fruit flavors are present, raisins and dried dates come out. Taste is very earthy in character.

M: Dry with a lot of carbonation, the body is light-medium is weight on the palate. The carbonation and body combine for a very balanced feel.

O: The aroma and flavor are outstanding for a budget Belgian beer. The appearance is slightly above average, but everything else about the beer raises its profile. It is not a standout, despite the rating, but if you're in a pinch for a good Belgian, you won't miss with this one.

4.23/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Very dark mahogany, opaque, large tanned rocky head, lots of lacing, top marks, can’t be improved on. S: Usual fudge, molasses and brown sugar expected from a BSDA, but also had and malt and hop content associated with a good Franconian doppelbock. T: Fudge, dark chocolate, cranberry, finish long, malty with some bitterness all balanced out by a surprising hop content. M: Smooth, creamy texture, light body, minimal carbonation. O: Great look, lots of layers, easy on the palate, ticks a lot of boxes.

3.61/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: dark brown amber, faintly translucent, fluffy foamy persistent head
S: malt, roast, corn, slight alcohol
T: sweetish, even more so than the nose, strong flavor of malt and roasted corn, yeast, metallic tinge, blackberry(?), mellow corn/berry finish
M: light-medium, smooth, slightly creamy, very gentle bite
O: One of the better brown ales, the high alcohol content can sneak up on you unaware as the alcohol blends into the carbonation with only tell-tale signs.

750mL / $7.99
