3.45/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
