Pint from the source for around five dollars on a weekend afternoon, reviewed from notes, originally was going to get a growler of this but they do not sell this beer to go because of its small quantity, color is a golden orange and amber mix, 1/4 inch small creamy white head that leaves no lacing and has weak retention, aroma consists of toffee, sugar, berries, caramel, sweetness, mild spice, and , flavor starts off sweet with both toffee and caramel, some sugar and berry fruits in the middle, finish has lots of sweet flavors and ends with a warming malt flavor, sweetens up more as it warms, sugary, sweet, and fruity mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, small amount of carbonation, could not drink much more than the glass, heavy from all the sweet stuff going on, alcohol seems a little high but not overly hot or anything, just more sweet than anything, best thing I have had from this brewpub, too bad this is not available year round because this is something I would revisit when in the area, recommended

This is a classic Belgian ale. strong fruity yeast estets, typical of this style beer. as far as matching the style guide, this one nails it.
