4.05/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a snifter.
An off white head of fine bubbles sits atopa translucent brown/amber brew.
Smell is of caramelized sugar and browned apples.
Taste is spicy/peppery upfront with a lightly toasted and candied nut flavor following, not really nutty but somewhat praline
actually. Not much belgian yeast flavor, which surprises me, and a very slight hops/alcohol dryness and astringency after swallowing and waiting a moment.
Mouthfeel is very carbonated and refreshing.
Very nice and not too heavy or too biting.
Serving type: bottle
