benediction is an interesting beer, i was half expecting it to be sour based on the name, but its a thin belgian dubbel, but only loosely. its maple syrup colored and with an inch of off white head, almost nitro looking. the nose is not as belgian yeasty as anticipated, more of a slight banana fruit thing. there is more of a dried rasion thing and some abbey malt in here on the taste, its both sweet and dry, one than the other, but it seems watered down by normal standards for the style in both body and alcohol. its real drinkable, which is cool, but it is also unsatisfying for the same reason. i like to drink these slow and let them warm up and warm me up, this one is a little incapable of the latter. good beer, well made no doubt, but not really satisfying the elements of the style that make it special in my opinion.

nice abbey style with good yeast. color is true to fit. lacing is very nice. lacks a little on the flavor side but is well made and finishes good. probably would rather have a better beer but if you like belgian and it's around then go for it.
