2.5/5  rDev -23.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

appearance: reddish and nearly zero lacing or head retention

smell: some sweetness and caramell notes

taste: tasted like a weak amber ale. The 4.0 abv for any belgian just really affects the true taste of a abbey ale.

mouthfeel: light to medium bodied.

drinkability: was not impressed, this was not my favorite beer there by any means. I prefered some of the others to this.

On tap at the brewery. Was told all beers are 3.2% alcohol which would make an Abbey a bit of a challenge.

10 oz. straight, high ball style glass. Golden tan color with a very thin, tan head. Belgian spice aroma.

The taste lacked the standard alcohol punch from the Belgian varieties. It did have a very nice flavor and mouthfeel given the shortcomings with being a 3.2% beer.

A - Pours a cloudy dark amber color, not much carbonation, tiny head, not much lacing at all.

S - Scents of slight hops, malts, plum, and raisins.

T - The taste is tangy, citrusy/fruity, finishes kinda dry.

M - Medium body, slightly carbonated.

D - Drinkable. Not a bad abbey at all considering what they have to work with.
