Mistura Clássica is about to change the Brazilian game. They've made a tripel, they've packaged it like a fancy champagne, and they've taken the beer and aged it in oak. Thank you Sergio for generously sharing this rarity. Also consumed with Fil. On to the beer:
The cork is a pain to get out because it is so damn long! After minutes of struggle, the bottle is opened and out come a beer with dark orange color and a small lump of head on top, slowly decaying into a lace. There are interesting notes in the nose. Candied orange, some oak, sugar, and peppermint extract.
Now we're talking. It's real sweet with the orange, but time mellow out the flavor and makes this beer a winner. Oak, toasted sugar, cane sugar, and more sweet oranges round out this nectar. The alcohol genntly heats the throat, but for 10%, the strength is deceiving. The body is medium-heavy, yet the beer is on the easier side towards consumption.
Easily the biggest surprise of the day for the three of us. This is a Brazilian man's Allagash Curieux, and a damn good one that's arguably better than the original.
