I saw this and immediately had to get it, despite it's high price. Belgians make excellent beer, right? And a winter bock, with the typical Belgian flavors like orange peel, coriander, and other spices? Even better, right? Well, too bad this was basically a mundane, spiced winter ale. The spices weren't all that noticeable, although there was a little bit of a sweet malt flavor. Full of alcohol, but you don't really notice it. It is marketed as a beer full of flavor, and comes across as being kind of week and unimpressive.
