750 mL on sale for $3.99 at Mac’s Midtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. Nice job on sale.
The dirty, unattractive Dubbel-like body still bothers me – I’ll never get over that.
Still prefer it on draught.

$5.99, 750 mL Arbor Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.
Very cloudy pour, despite great care taken, and initially the overwhelming experience is sweet. I get a lot of burned sugar smells in the aroma and in the initial taste. I found that it filled the mouth with an alcohol taste above anything else. Some very thin lacing and a fast receding head.
Mouthfeel is just a little on the thin side for the style, and the alcohol is not well hidden. I like more body and more fruit in my darker Belgians and this doesn’t provide either very well.
Nevertheless, still a pretty good beer that I would certainly class as drinkable, if generally generally overrated.
