Default North Coast Cru D'or

Anybody else tried this? Just saw it on sale for $4/4-pack in the local and grabbed a box. Pretty good stuff! Somewhere between amber and brown in color, Belgian-style ale, very malty but not overly sweet, and a slight fruitiness. Supposedly 8%abv, but doesn't taste like it...very nice body and malty flavor for a beer with that abv. Frankly, I don't drink many Belgians so I can't really compare it to the original style.

Guess they don't agree with the local palate, but a great purchase for $4 IMO!
