Way fairly impressed with this. Especially after the mess they had own their triple.
Pours a dark mahogany with a nice silky head, excellent lace.
Nose has ripe pitted fruits, caramel, toffee, nuts, peppery Belgian yeast and bready malts.
Taste is sweet and malts forward. But very bready and nutty with some spicey and herbal flavors from the yeast.
Medium to full body has a nice soft carbonation and respectable finish. Great balance and drinkability.
One of the better non-trappist brewed versions of the style I've had. Also one of Great Divide's more quality offerings.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Burley Oak snifter
A: A nice hazy dark brown that gets darker with depth. A decent finger width head with minimal lacing.
S: Spicy and sweet. Quite Belgian with what smells like some candi sugar.
T: Typical belgian spice and style that has a nice level of sweetness. Good flavors here, but it has this strange taste in there towards the end. Also, there is quite a bit of of raisins and dried fruit in here.
M: Overall quite smooth but you can feel a lot of bubbles in there that aren't too prickly. It is a bit thin, but still good.
O: Tasty and glad I was able to find it even though I wasn't looking for it specifically. It is much better than the new Peach Grand Cru. I feel like this is either on the cusp of going downhill or just passed it.
Opened this with some of my neighbors and they fully enjoyed it, but they are mainly wine people. Doing my part to share the goods.
