4.75/5 rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 12oz fat twisty with a black&white of a bunch of fat jolly beer drinking blokes. The cool part is that we spotted a photographic style head that is a bit out of place. A guy on the right hand side of the label stares at you with a beer (the brewer?).
Appearance: Hazy, bubbly gold. The rushing carbonation creates a foamy white head that sticks slightly.
Smell: Horsy, animal smell (a common Belgian yeast trait) with notes of dry malts.
Taste: Definitely spiced, with coriander most likely. Sweet malt, then the spice, turning a tad grainy. A warming alcohol is present and hides perfectly amongst the malty mouth-feel. You can feel its 6.9% abv strength, yet it is highly drinkable. Finishes sweet.
Notes: For a lighter coloured Belgian style ale, this kicks the dregs out of Duvel. More character and complexity than their exports could ever dream of. So if you like Duvel, or similar, you will be in bliss with this brew. Available in a 4-pack for about $7 US.
