04/15/14 From bottle. I usually like Belgians, particularly triples, as long as they're not so strong they come with an ambulance discount card.

Unfortunately this let me down...twice. At first it looked great. Texture creamy, lovely clear color but the first taste was of corn. A cross between a corn flake & a cold popcorn kernel with no salt (or yummy caramel a la Cracker Jacks).

Things went from bad to worse when I poured the dregs, with the yeast, into the last glass. It held half the bottle so the concentration should have been reasonable, but I guess it was just too 'wild' for me. I prefer those bready heady things from Unibroue & not the unruly sour. I finished it (I always do) but once was enough.
