Poured into a snifter this Belgian Ale had considerable effervescence and a rapidly retreating head. I watched the small bubbles of carbonation reach the top in a continuous stream. The color is of a blurry red/brown, cloudy and layered its quite fetching.
Remarkably fragrant I get dates, some sweet citrus, licorice and raisins. Very nice in the nose it's nicely complex but even a little simple. The scents are not hard to notice and blend well.
The taste is sweet, I get the raisin first, then a light but fleeting citrus. Problem I sense is that an alcohol brashness ends the taste. This alcohol harshness lends to mouthfeel as well. I allowed the Ale to warm and it seemed to be nicer closer to room temperature. I began to get some apple, a bit of fig, the date and far less harshness.
I regret drinking this at a lower temperature and will keep it closer to 60F next time. Very nicely constructed Ale with great range a nice complexities.
