2.96/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Parents brought me a 6-pack of this stuff. Like previously mentioned, they got it at fresh & easy.

Dark copper color into pint glass.

Smells very adjuncty. I think I'm picking up a trace of DMS. Some sweeter malts, hint of spices.

More adjuncts on the palate. Not sure how to describe it, just has a sort of blah feel. Tastes sweet. Spices are there too. Not a drain pour, just not a lot going on outside of the block of malt. Did this attenuate fully?

Fuller mouthfeel, as many commercial spiced beers tend to have.

Overall this beer is average to drink, but I have used it to flavor some soups and chili, hence the half point bump to 3.5. I don't like using too nice of a beer for cooking, but I also don't want to use a shit beer either. This one falls somewhere inbetween.

Says "Belgian Ale with spices" on the bottle.

This is another Fresh & Easy beer.

Clear amber colored beer with a small yellowish white colored head.

Smells sweet with spices, mostly vanilla and cinnamon. Little bit of caramel in the smell and no hops to speak of.

Starts out sweet and spicy with a strong wheat malt flavor and lots of caramel. Vanilla and cinnamon are the main spices. Lots more body than I would have expected from a Fresh & Easy beer.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall better than expected. Quite thick and it surprised me. It was worth the $7 for the Six-pack.
