Poured from a bottle into a La Fin du Monde tulip. Nice dark orange color. Slightly cloudy with two fingers of creamy head. Very good retention. I get some sweet, malty notes tinged with fruit on the nose. Toast, marmalade, pineapples, and a little lemon.
Medium body with a slick, oily feel. Plenty of sweet, grainy malt up front and enough hops to provide a fruity component to the flavor like over-ripe oranges and pineapples. There is a touch of quinine-like bitterness that cuts through near the finish and complements the fruity sweetness nicely, but the fruit flavors linger the longest.
Very reminiscent of Houblon Chouffe in that it seems to taste like a cross between an American IPA and a Belgian Tripel. This one lacks some of the hoppy components of the d'Achouffe beer (sadly), but is still a fine beer. Very well-constructed and enjoyable. Complex without demanding too much.
