I poured this 11.2 oz. bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A: Dark mahogany, nearly opaque, 2 finger head falls into wonderful lacing that never completely vanishes.
S: Lots of Belgian yeast, candied fruit, spice, and sweet malt.
T: Exceptionally complex: up front there is sweet malt, candied cherries and plums, yeasty esters, and spice, in the middle there is a bit of acidity and a tiny bit of hops, the finish is long, luxurious, and dry.
M: Like velvet, with a perfect balance between acidity and malty mouth-coating goodness.
D: Nearly perfect.
Serving type: bottle
