3.58/5 rDev -11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
11.2 oz bottle poured into my pilaarbijter glass.
A - two fingers of head atop the moderately cloudy reddish-orange ale S - dried apricots and malt; the alcohol does singe the hairs a bit, but overall light and pleasant T - starts off sour citrus but moves quickly to rich hops and alcohol. I enjoy lingering alcohol fumes and this perfectly satisfied that need M - thick and moderately carbonated; I despise over-carbonated ales so I'm happy D - If you like standing, any more than 4 of these will make leaving the couch difficult. I have six and imagine only having 2 or 3 before I move to something else....just finished my second and I'm enjoying it even more. I won't change my scores, but I'm really enjoying the citrus notes on the palate.
Overall, it will be a good experience if you're not turned off by a fruit influence on a strong Belgian Quad. The malt is not completely lost on this one, but it is far from a focus. Certainly worth a go.
