a : Clear poor into a snifter, generates ample, white, head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing. The beer is a dark red/amber color
s : I love the smell of this. Dark fruits, raisons, cherries. The alcohol is faint, but you can smell it. I can also smell something else, it reminds me of like... sprite, citrisy.
t : I got a real big punch of citrus-sweetness right up front. The first drink finish with a nice hoppy bitterness mixed in with the dark fruits that I smelled. This beer is malty and well balanced. Also, sequence tastes of the beer didn't produce that puch of citrus that I got with my first sip. Finally, I should mention that the alcohol is noticeable if you are looking for it, but I blend in well with the other flavors. It does however give a nice warming sensation as you drink the beer, which probably good since it is a winter ale.
m : Not as much carbination as some belgian styles I have had. The beer is pretty thin, but is able to coat the mouth well and stick around until you next drink.
d : I am trying something new here and not checking the ABV on the beer before I determine this. So, given that I have no knowledge of the ABV I thnk I will say that this is a pretty drinkable beer. Not as good as the Tremens, but still pretty good. Give me 2 pints of this stuff and it will certainly turn into a happy hour.
This beer is a favorite of mine and I was happy to be able to obtain a bottle of it to drink this year. I like the darker malt and fruit tastes that I get with the beer and also the characteristic acidity that most belgians have. Good buy, go try.
