Pours a cloudy orange/brown color that shifts slightly to orange when held up to the light. Moderate head after the pour which dissipates after several minutes. Some lacing, typical of 10% avb.

Freshly cut apples and pears with some light citrius and spice on the nose. Some nutmeg, cinnamon, and toffee.

Mouthfeel is full with some prickliness from medium carbonation. Taste is more fruit with some pepper and copper, with a light but enjoyable alcohol burn that lingers a while on the finish.

This is a big, assertive beer that's perfect for cold nights. One of my all time favorite beers.

11.2 oz bottle; tulip

A – Dark orange to ruby amber, pinkish hues where the light passes through most. About three inches of thick, uniform head, slightly off white with tan or pinkish tint. Foam fades slowly, evenly, high retention.

S – Funky Belgian yeast, peppery with some mild acidity. Lots of malty sweetness and some mild alcohol warmth/burn, not a flaw. Some red apple, fig, perhaps prunes, fruity and sweet.

T – Golden raisins, light toffee, with bright cherry slightly present in the background. Herbal hop aromas, bitterness is there but seems low due to high carbonation and sweetness. More peppery flavors from the yeast, just the smallest hint of garlic and/or cloves, and some cola notes.

M – Very high carbonation, a massive hit of biting bubbles, backed by acidity, with a slight bite or tickle on the back of the tongue. Bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Alcohol present but well-masked.

O – Excellent balance and a complex aroma and flavor profile, washed mostly away by the millions of scrubbing bubbles. Would love this with some roasted, garlicky meats, or crispy potatoes.
