look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
11.20 oz / 33cl to chimay glass - part of the 3 pack giftset
drank at cellar temp
pours a dark hazy orangish red in light, brownish without, beautiful tightly laced cream colored head slowly fades
smells of fruity yeast esters, clove banana, spice, sweet malt
tastes sweet with a dry finish, very little hop presence is balanced out by the malt sweetness, spicy yeast becomes creamy in the finish, malt and yeast forward beer, good carbonation, alcohol is quite hidden, finally the hop bitterness comes out in the finish along with alc. warming
mouthfeel is sweet and creamy but still feels a little thin.. makes it more drinkable, excellent balance, not something i would seek out, but easy to drink and fairly enjoyable
Serving type: bottle
