4.33/5  rDev +15.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured enjoy by May 2014 12oz bottle into New Belguim globe

A-Pours a lovely deep, dark amber with a lively white head that fades. Minimal lacing.

S-Aromas are caramel, biscuit, clove, raisin, coriander, and other spices. Very delightful

T-Flavors are very spice forward with some bread and sweet caramel malts and finally a tangy dark fruit aftertaste with a slight back of the tongue tartness.

M-Mouthfeel is medium body, fluffy carbonation, spicy and a fruity finish.

O-Overall great beer was quite surprised. This the first beer I've had by BMB very impressed.

Surprisingly good tripel, received in craft pack from WFM.

A: Pours a burnt walnut color with a frothy beige head that retains well and leaves plenty of lace all the way.

Smell: Dark dried fruit, primarily raisins and prunes, yeast, with grassy background.

Taste: Follows smell, with dark fruit, up front, and a bready, yeasty core. Good tickler hops balance the sweetness. In the finish, the sweet malt elements win and blend with the tingly herbal/bitter character.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; a little warmth.

Drinkability: Meditation beer. I savored mine. Well made.

Picked this up a week or so ago at the ShopRite Liquors in Wharton. I never had this before and hadn't had anything from the Blue Mountain Brewery and although I wasn't expecting this to match up to anything from Europe, I was hoping that this would be a lighter, easier version of this style to quaff. There was more than enough here to satisfy those requirements as this beer was nice to kick back with on a humid night such as this one!

This had a good pour to it, as the frothy, soft head and the dark, garnet edges to the liquid gave this brown beer a nice lift. The bubbles settled pretty quickly but there were nice rings of lacing that more than made up for it. Not a strong aroma to this but there was enough sugar and dark fruit present to give me an idea of what kind of beer this was. No, this wasn't that strong in the alcohol department and no, there wasn't a lot of yeast to complement everything else...but both were present and went along with the cherry and underlying dark fruits that made this beer so open to enjoyment. The mouthfeel was somewhat full but had a bit too much syrup to it, but it went along with how subdued this felt to the taste.

The alcohol was present after I polished this off but not via the taste and the slight mineral hardness of the water was what lingered in the aftertaste once the yeast, booze, and flavors wore off. If it was possible to brew a mountain-style beer without the grain and with a good European influence, it would taste a lot like this. Not anything to rush out and buy but those looking for a "light Dubbel" would be wise to start here. There was enough to like here without an overriding sweetness and this stayed true to form from start to finish. Fun stuff!

Beer review #666, poured into a snifter

A- pours a chestnut brown color with a creamy light cream colored head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind

S- candied dark fruit, buiscity malt, dark cherry juice and caramel

T- dark cherry flavor with a slight tartness, sugary malt that finishes buiscuity with some herbal notes

M- medium body with light carb, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a crisp, dry finish

O- well constructed and easy to drink, doesn't compare to the world class Belgian examples but definitely worth a try
