11.2oz bottle into long stemmed tulip. drink by date of 090216.
A: this head is enormous. and will not go away. delicate lace. head has garnet highlights in its mostly white existence. murky garnet body. some lacing.
S: CO2. seriously. the gas trapped in this beer is crazy. floral. dandelions and lilly's. darker malts and candy. maple syrup. very fresh maple syrup. good, but i had to wait awhile before i got any real distinct aromas. the gas coming out of the beer was sort of distracting. my only complaint.
T: plums, apricot. a caramel flavor that is not too sweet. a little bit of vanilla. finish is sweet, but not cloying. the effervescence makes it refreshing.
M: like i said above, an effervescent carbonation on a full body.
D: cannot believe this is 9.2 and as fresh as it is. literally no heat and drinks like a wit (sans body). very impressive showing from Rochefort and i look forward to trying 6 and 10.
Serving type: bottle
