Small 330 ml bottle pours a murky brown color with a huge frothy and creamy off-white head that lasts, light malt and somewhat spicy aroma. Very mild fruity and bready flavor, medium body with very lively carbonation nice clean finish a bit watery palate, very smooth and drinkable alcohol is well hiddin. Lighter than the 8 and 10, still a great brew.

Poured from a 11.2oz brown bottle.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Big head which lasted a few minutes and there is also some very nice lacing. Nice bit of sediment that took some swirling to loosen up.

Aroma is very nice and complex. The aroma has some sweetness in it, some licorice like smells. There are some floral and fruity aromas. There are also some nice spice notes with a nice hop note as well. As it warms the aroma becomes more earthy. Overall a very nice aroma.

The taste has some nice spiciness to it. Very smooth too, relatively low carbonation, tastes almost flat. Not a bad thing though. The taste is also quite earthy, there is also some slight fruity sweetness to it. Finish is spicy with some slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty good, drinkability is very good too.

Overall pretty good. Not quite what I was expecting, but still very good.

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

Appearance: Hazy-brown Yazoo clay, small fizzy head that quickly dissipates. No lacing.

Smell: Bread crust, alcohol, some dark fruits, caramel

Taste: Dry bread crust, yeast, alcohol, some fruits (bruised apples, dark raisins, figs, blood orange)

Mouthfeel: Light and semi-dry, crisp, a little lighter than I prefer, a little too much carbonation

Drinkability: Good, would be great with some cheese or other fatty food to balance the acidity. On the lighter end of the BSDA spectrum, possibly another category - lacks the darker, heavier wow factor of others.

First beer of 2009! Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay chalice.
A - Slightly cloudy, brownish red in color; similar to the appearance of unfiltered apple juice. Bubbly head that lasts and lasts. Nice lacing.
S - Aroma of fermented fruit-apples,figs,apricots. Notes of caramel as well.
T - Complex yeasty tastes of apples,figs,clove with notes of caramel and chocolate. Nice balance of sweet and tart.
M - Light on the palate. A bit slick but slightly effervescent as well.
D - This is probably the best Belgian I've tried. Not too heavy on the palate and not too big on the ABV to have 2 or 3.
