Poured from the tap into a 500mL pint glass at Stagiare's in Shanghai, China.

A: The beer is a murky reddish brown with a light tan head that was foamy and didn't last long.

S:Light aroma of fruit and maybe burnt sugar. Yeasty.

T: Slightly fruity with hints of berries. Very yeasty and Belgian tasting, like a dubbel. Good malt character includes toast - lightly bready with a hint of caramel. Comes together strongly like a caramel apple might.

Overall: A nice surprise to be found in Shanghai, but this would be a welcome sight anywhere. Refreshing but also very powerful. A good one to kick back with.
