Hazy mahogany colour with a small, light tan head. Poor head retention.

Interesting dark fruit aroma. Raisins. Fresh fruity yeast notes. Almost a little tart. Touches of clove. Not quite well integrated.

Very fruity. Fermented quite warm. Tons of stonefruit. Touches of bitterness. Plenty of malt but it gets a little cut through. Not a great Belgian to my tastes.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Not bad.

An okay beer. Good Belgian flavours but out of sync and not balanced.
