4.55/5 rDev +9.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Cloudy light amber brown color, with a small white head that goes down to an even layer quick, leaving some lacing
Smell: Sweet malts and bread with some Belgian yeast spicyness
Taste: More sweet malts, hints of plum, clove, bread, spice, and earthiness. Quite the complex brew, and quite delicious.
Mouthfeel: Thick with crisp carbonation, but something in there makes your mouth feel happy
Overall: One of my favorite beers. ABV is well hidden here, so it drinks easy, though it still encourages you to drink slow and savor it. I wish it was cheaper, because if it were I would always have it around. I do like the Grande Réserve better, but this has its place.
Serving type: bottle
