Pours dark reddish color with thin light tan head. Some lacing. Smells nice with lots of ripe fruit and yeast. Taste was o.k. Sweet up front with the usual banana and other ripe fruit. Not sure if I had a bad bottle but there was a strange stale aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little watery and not much carbonation. Overall I did'nt care for this particular bottle. I will try it again when I find some more and adjust my review.

A - Brown in color and maybe a little reddish look. Looks incredible. Great lacing and head retention.

S - Fruity yet kind of had a yeast smell too, a little bit of chocolate and caramel and some dark fruit notes. As the head came down, the smell became more complex. This is so complex that i had a hard time deciding what I was actually smelling.

T -Very mild bitterness. Malty,with a chocolate taste. then comes out with a fruit flavor. Possibly a plum, or grape. I have had a hard time trying to decide what it is that is lingering, but it seems so complex that i miss the note. Very nice taste, can't think of what it is but it's incredible.

M - This is a very smooth beer. I can taste the alcohol but it's faint. Excellently masked.

O - This was pricey, but worth it. I don't know if there's a better Belgian Ale. It's so complex and taste so damn good.

3.35/5  rDev -16.5%

11.2oz bottle into Delirium Tremens snifter.

Pours a very dark red-brown with tons of yeast floaties and a thick, foamy light tan head.

The aroma seems a bit muted, but is a blend of Belgian yeast, candi sugar and very faint fruit.

The taste follows the nose, in that it seems a bit muted overall. There is more of a balance in the over-ripe apple and candi sugar notes.

The mouthfeel is low carbonated and a thin to medium body.

A decent BSDA, though a bit thin in the body and muted aroma and taste.
