look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear medium brown color with reddish overtones. The beer has a modest off-white head that fades fairly quickly.

Smell: Bready, fruity notes dominate.

Taste: The fruity notes in the nose are prominent. It finishes with a combination of fruity sweetness, slight phenols, and faint hop bitterness. I pick up a very slight metallic note in the finish also. Alcohol is hidden fairly well.

Mouth-feel: Body is on the lighter Medium side with a fair level of carbonation.

Overall: A good beer I keep coming back to.

Poured from 33 cl bottle into my lost abbey stemware glass

A - Poured dark amber/brown color with big head that slowly dissipated leaving significant lacing around the glass.

S - Sweet malts, caramel, fruits and some nuttiness.

T - Just like smell very sweet and malty upfront followed by fruits, caramel with hints of alcohol content towards the finish.

M - Medium body with high carbonation.

D - Very good and pleasant beer. Makes a great winter ale.
