Pours golden, really cloudy, with a small lasting white head.
Surprisingly weird smelling for a Winter beer, with some big sour notes, not entirely reminding of lambics, but of fermenting white grape, apple and apricot, or more like a rustic-made white wine. Some candi sugar, licorice, clove, orange and lemon lozenges, faint gingerbread, funky yeasts and some warm alcohol.
Monstrously huge sweet (sugary!) malts, somewhat escalating from the front to the aftertaste. So does the alcohol. Hard to discern anything else under the heaviness of the sugary malt and alcohol combo. Some faint apricot, fresh orange peel and apple lingering, dense Belgian yeasts, gingerbread spices (peppercorn shines). Finishes mouth-numbing, somewhat bitter and syrupy.
Thick body, low to medium carbonation. Must sip! Aftertaste has alcohol, candi sugar, some clearer fruitiness manages to settle. In time the semi-dry white wine feel from the smell becomes more apparent in the (after)taste, but there's still so much sugar!
Didn't expect such a BIG beer (tho, 12%). Tasty, but a sweet-tooth is imperative, strong, so take some time with it. Hard to rate.
