One of my all time favorite beers. Just getting around to reviewing it. We can only get this at my store every once in awhile, and so when it comes in, I make sure to open one right away.
A- Pours a deep ruby color with a porous, light tan head that dissolves into large bubbles and quickly disappears, leaving minimal, soapy lacing.
S-Bready malts, saltwater taffy, those gummy fruit slice candies, a touch of cherry. Beautiful.
T/M-Sweet malts, musty basement funk, and candi sugar are the most prominent flavors. As I sip, flavors of lightly tart cherry and wood slip through, though they are a very minor component here. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with light, playful carbonation.
D-This beer's so Goddamn amazing. When I haven't had it for awhile I think maybe it won't live up to my memories of it, but it always does. It's a Belgian classic.
