A:
Pours an almost-clear amber red-brown with a gloppy pile of creamy tan head. Great retention; beautiful lacing. Nearly perfect.

S:
Yeast and minerals with a lot of cherries and dark fruits with a touch of spice.

T:
Rich and sweet dark fruits mixed with hints of nuts, caramel, hard water, and doughy yeast. Malty and fresh on the whole.

M:
Creamy and rich with really crisp, strong carbonation. Chewy but medium bodied.

O:
Good, but certainly not the most outrageous Belgian brune on earth. All in all, it is a solid beer but is nothing too mind-blowing. It defends itself well and could be a good introduction to the style. Solid beer, beautiful to look at but all the rest of it is neither amazingly good not even slightly bad.
Would have again, worth trying if you get the chance.
