Average Belgian ale, expected as an almost mass market brew. Aroma and taste are so-so. palate is also average. Again it’s a good drinker, but not a stand out.

From my beer journal. Reviewed in Early May 2011. Served in a Shipyard Tulip.

A: Dark golden color with a nice thick head

S: I'm getting a sweet, fruity aroma. Apples?

T: This is sweet up front with enough carbonation to keep from being cloying. Surprisingly a bit sour too.

M: Medium body with a dry finish.

O: I actually really enjoyed this. This was my first of the style and I thought it was great!
