I'll start by saying that I'm not a fan of most Belgium ales. This Grande Reserve was bottled in a .75L cork topped bottle and poured in a pint glass.
A. A nice reddish brown color with a tall thin head. So carbonated that it reminds me more of a light pilsner.
S. A sweet smell of yeast with a fruity nose.
T. A caramelized fruit taste that is sweet at first and finishes with a pronounced alcohol aftertaste. This beer is a roller coaster ride for the senses.
M. A nice thick viscosity for a medium colored beer.
D. I was satisfied by the overall experience and may give this style another chance based on this tasting.
