A - Slightly hazy, beautiful coppery color. Reasonable head, nice lacing. Very little in the way of carbonation.
S - Wow! Mango, grapefruit, just plain hops. Absolutely intense. Mild sweetness and alcohol, a bit of orange.
T - Extraordinary. The bitterness doesn't overwhelm you at first; the first impression is "sweet." The grapefruit dominates the other fruit flavors, maybe a little too strongly, in fact. The aftertaste is a clean, hoppy bitterness. Smooth, very easy to drink. Every taste is completely full-bodied; letting it linger in the mouth reveals a little more fruit, and an aftertaste of grapefruit or orange peel. It's difficult to separate the various sweet citrus and fruit. My palate detects almost no specific malts, but maybe that's just me.
M - Tiniest amount of carbonation in the mouth, barely a hint of the 9.4% ABV. Extremely smooth, and easy to swish around and enjoy. Not exactly a gulping beer, but certainly not a dubbel or quad, either. This might be the most perfect mouthfeel I've found in a beer.
O - I was absolutely blown away by this beer, so much so that I ran out and bought two more to share at a tasting with friends. They were just as impressed. Every time this is available, I will buy it.
Poured into a Duvel goblet (slightly more than half the bottle per pour), and paired with apples, horseradish cheddar, crackers, and salami.
