3/5 rDev -23.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Light copper color is slightly cloudy. Three fingers of loose foamy head. Lacing is moderate. Smell is faintly of alcohol and Belgian yeast, not very strong. Flavor is slightly perfumy, with fruit, bread, apples, Belgian yeast and a present albeit faint alcohol note. No bitterness. Mouthfeel is light with a medium amount of carbonation.
Overall: This brewery has a great history, being one of the oldest breweries in Belgium. However, I just found it to be lacking in mouthfeel and depth of flavor. The perfumy notes don’t really do it for me, and although the alcohol is light, it it borders on being too liquor like. Just average.
POST COMMENT: As this beer warmed, it had a cider like quality, with clear apple overtones and a creamier mouthfeel. It was more enjoyable this way, and I would recommend letting it warm slightly before imbibing.
