4.21/5 rDev +16.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Bottled on October 9, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy brownish amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of off white head which fade into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A fruity, yeasty, and sweet Belgian Cru style aroma with big hints of peaches and spice. Belgian yeast with hints of clove, peppers, and funk. Big scent of peaches along with some other fruit hints of pear, apple, banana, and grapes. Sweet malt hints of caramel, biscuit, grains, straw, and cracker. Big scent of Belgian candied sugar. Subtle dark fruit hints of raisin and fig. A pretty solid fruity smell.
Taste: Like it smells, a yeasty, fruity, and fairly sweet Belgian taste with big notes of peach and malt. Belgian yeast along with some notes of clove, funk, and peppers. Big presence of candied sugars. Big upfront taste of peaches. Also some fruit notes of pear, banana, apple, and grapes. Solid malt presence with notes of sweet caramel, grains, straw, biscuit, and cracker. Subtle undertones of dark fruit with some raisin and fig notes. Pretty light hop presence. A pretty solid taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Sweet and somewhat sticky but not cloying. Kind of boozy but it still goes down easy.
Overall: A pretty solid twist on a Grand Cru. The peaches add a good kick. Not quick as big with the dark fruit as the style typically is but its still good.

The beer comes in a clear dark amber orange.
The aroma is of sweet caramel, honey, peaches, Belgian breadiness.
The flavor follows with sweet caramel malt, breadiness, a honey sweetness, and then some overly sweet peach essence. Some Belgian spiciness comes through as well. It finishes slightly dry, a bit phenolic with hints of alcohol.
The beer is overly sweet. However, that does at least hide the alcohol and it surely does not drink like a 12% ABV beer. Everyone we shared the bottle with as quite surprised. Still, a disappointing one. Hits of peach, but as said earlier "sugary booze bomb" is a good descriptor.
