This is a 3-year old bottle, chilled, then warmed a bit for a half hour.
Pours a rich crimson red, with an abundance of chunky sediment. There's a fine head of fine white foam, and only insubstantial lace in my St. Bernardus goblet.
Nose is nice fruity aromas, including berries, wine grapes, strawberries, and a definite earthiness and bread-like character from the yeast. Exquisite!
Taste is heavy on the fruity qualities, with a sweet character (witness the berries mentioned before) and a slightly spiced, warming finish. I get plenty of carbonation here (indeed, the caged & corked bottle popped loudly upon opening). This is a beautiful brew, packed with complexity and well worth a try for anyone into classic Belgian ales.
