Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
I have been drinking more Belgians lately. So I was curious to see how Sierra Nevada was doing in this department.
Color: A striking darker reddish brown- very nice!
Nose: Some sweetness, reminiscent of many Belgian Ales.
Taste: Initial flavor has some esters, but not a whole lot.
As smooth as some Belgians, but this beer seems like a "Belgian imposter." Although its smooth, its a little too soft on the finish and falls a little flat for me. I would have never guessed this beer was made by Sierra Nevada (which is both good and bad). This is a surprisingly good Belgian attempt, but from SN this should be a knockout with the $ tied up in their testing facility and lab.
Definitely better examples of this style both domestic and abroad.
