3.48/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: served with a dense head of about a finger. Creamy lacing on the sides of the glass while drinking. Murky brownish orange color to this brew. Average to low carbonation active.

Smell: pretty subdued overall. A light buttery dough aroma hits on the front. There is a slight honey sweetness in the body. Creamy malt throughout.

Taste: a very easy going cask ale. The front is a distinctive Belgian yeast and light fruit feeling. The body is subdued but has a very solid malty texture. The finish is a medium darkness which sticks on the palate for a long time.

Mouth feel: heavier then I expected. Strong malt and Belgian yeast texture.

Overall: like most of new Hollands beers, very solid. Good balance throughout but nothing overly memorable.
