A: Dark hazy orange, almost non-existent white head.

S: Cherry and orange in the nose, along with some fruity Belgian yeast esters.

T: Orange and cherry are the dominant flavors, but there's also some lemon and a strong malty finish.

M: Fuller side of medium bodied, fairly smooth.

O: This isn't quite their best beer, but it's pretty good. Definitely worth a try.

Two finger rapidly dissipating head with nice thick lacing on a murky golden body with tan hues. Aroma is Very much like a farmhouse ale with Belgian yeast and esters, mildly fruity with hints of a DIY or dark fruit like aroma in a belgian dark strong. Flavor is more on the belgian dark strong lines with fig and dark fruit and more Belgian yeast. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Overall an excellent beer especially for a national brewery chain.
