12 oz bottle picked up from the local gas station. $8.99 for a six pack of BSDA? I figure it is worth try. Served up in a goblet.

A: Pours up a seemingly thin, dark mahogony, brown colored body. Held to the light, it still stays pretty dark in the center with more light pushing through on all edges. There appears to be a pretty steady carbonation level going on in here. The pour got me the thinnest of top caps that is light tan in color. Sadly, no retention at all and no lace. This just becomes a capless beer in no time.

S: Getting that initial burst of bubblegum and banana you would expect from a belgian style. The bubble gum is pretty amped up. Behind that there is a bit of plum and maybe pineapple. It has both a tropical and dark fruit presence. There is a slight nutty note coming out as well.

T: Starts off with that Belgian quality of bubblegum and banana. Luckily the bubblegum is a bit more subtle in the flavor than it was in the nose. Definitely getting some dark fruit notes but they are subtle (plum mostly). There is a definite burst of chocolate malt coming through. Rich cocoa is easily distinguishable. Little bit of spice pops up from time to time. It all works but it is pretty subtle in some areas, and strong in others.

M: Light side of medium in body. Carbonation is on the high end. Slick on the palate. Sweet. ABV is light considering it is over 8%. Aftertaste is a nice and lingering bubblegum.

OA: Not bad. Its not a BSDA with a huge wow factor, but it has potential. It hits all the high points I look for in a BSDA and it makes for a really good, low cost brew in this style. It may not have the look or huge flavor, but it works. I will absolutely buy this again to keep in the house. Cheap and tasty. There is a place for this.

Price: $8.99 Served In: Bottle
