Backwoods Belgian

It's Halloween! Checking out Lazy Magnolia's Backwoods Belgian, a seasonal golden ale brewed with honeysuckle. The label depicts a quaint illustration of a little boy and his dog, dirt path, wooden fence--very Huck Finn-ish.

Honey and flowers and peaches with just a touch of spice on the nose. Interesting. Honey, sweet peaches and banana flavors all come out right away. Tasty though a bit syrupy, actually more than a bit. Secondary flavors show off some spicy cloves and coriander and bubblegum. You could tell the alcohol was not at a minimum, but when I found 8.51% on the label, I was surprised it was that high. Well disguised.

Good flavors but too thick, sweet and syrupy. Pass.
