look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A - pours a darker brown slight ruby when held to light. Some dark gold. Nice looking in glass.

S - raisin, plum, spice. Good, nothing jumps out.

T - alcohol, some raisin, some grape, mostly alcohol

M - again alcohol. Not well hidden, warming, but not inviting

O - to each his own, totally missed the mark for me. Far better and enjoyable Belgians out there. Dispite some cellering, a boozy mess. Lacked depth, flavor, and body. Will have another down the road to see if opinion changes, and if so, will edit post.

Serving type: can

12 oz single can bought from LIfesource Natural Grocer in Salem OR. $2.59 Pours a brown with garnet aspects around the edges. Large creamy thick light tan coloured head. Creamy fudge like aromas foillowed by raisin and spice. Slightly cheesy and earthy ,complex. Very smooth and balanced taste with the same as the aroma, but a touch of alcohol and herbal bitterness. Palate is just fine..reasonably smooth and easily drinkable. Its OK but not up to the Belgian standards.
