look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Tasted June 3rd 2011 (from notes)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - blood orange almost opaque, one and a half finger tan head and slight lacing
S - pungent, sweet, sour, boozy, hoppy, sweet yeast, dark fruits, wine barrels, soil, slightly citrus, lots of malt, maybe a wheat note, plums and maybe some tropical fruits
T - alcohol, very sweet and hoppy up front. Such a nice bitter and then sweet. A tad sour in the middle. Dark red fruits, super malty, oak, earth, some citrus, cherries and sweet yeast
M - big, full bodied, chewy, medium to high acidity, very long finish and well balanced
D - if you love boozy, sweet and hoppy and almost 10%, this beer drinks like water. Well balanced and very drinkable
Final thought - expensive, high alcohol, once a year release and being from sierra nevada. You have to have this one and maybe age it!
