Re-review:

Not as good as back in 2009. Still a good brew.

Poured into a over sized wine glass.

A: Deep copper that borders on brown. Whitish head that is thick and puffy. Lacing is descent.

S: Mild herbal hops, yeast, ripe fruit and malts.

T: Nice hop malt balance with a hint of overripened cherries.

M: Medium/light creamy with good caronation level.

D: A good Belgian ale. Swirl the bottle because there is some yeasty sediment on the bottom of this brew, which was a definite suprise to me. This is unbeatable for the price. I would absolutely pick up a case of this...
