4.06/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Bottle: weird glass 330mL bottle, with a shit-house looking label. Saw this heaps of times at the local and it looked like a tacky Indian job. It was only after I found out about it on beeradvocate.com that I realised it may have been worth drinking.
Appearance: hazy bright golden yellow in colour, with plenty of floaties. A disappointingly small head pops up and disolves almost immediately. The clinging floaties make the beer look good.
Aroma: quite a bit of Belgian yeast and not much else. Good quality, but not much else on the nose.
Taste: those big, bold Belgian yeasts are again at the fore, but there are definitely some cherry, pepper and honey notes behind it. A very nice beer to drink.
Aftertaste: funnily enough, a tiny bit of what seems like citric hops backing up in the aftertaste.
Mouth feel: great mouth feel - medium-to-heavy in body, with a low carbonation. Any more carbonation would ruin the flavours coming through. Mouth feel is just about perfect.
Overall: one of the better Belgian strong pale ales I have had. It's a pity the packaging is so rubbish, or I'd have had this a lot sooner. Seems very traiditional, per the big floaties throughout. A nice beer.
