look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into an oversized wine glass

A- Blood orange body, a nice tight white head that settled very quickly with no lacing, TONS of lively carbonation, very uniformed! Looks tempting...

S- Sweeet! Caramalts, banana, some fig/dark fruit, a bit of spice! It is just way too inviting... This is just a belgian special you can dig into when it hits your nose!

T- sweet caramalt, dark sugar and dark fruit! some banana, and a very and I mean VERY subtle yeast/spice. I really enjoy the taste of this.

MF- Medium bodied with a light-medium carbonation. Incredibly smooth. The flavor likes to hang around for a short while, but not long enough to make one want more and more. Just great, but a bit light for a belgium.

O- Yum. I loved it, the back abbey in my area had it on tap, but unfortunately ran out that night! I want more!!!! I am looking forward to trying this again on tap! Such a great beer. If you like belgians and you want a decent price pick this up!
