4.63/5 rDev +12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
750ml corked and caged bottle with a born on date of 02/08 on the cork poured into my duvel tulip.
A- a very murky golden brown colored body with a large light beige colored head. the head lasts a long time and leaves solid walls of lacing left on the sides of the glass.
S- this one smells strongly of belgian yeast. after that comes a plethora of dark fruits. cherries, plums, figs, dates, pears and raisins/tobacco. this one has it all.
T- the taste follows the nose closely. lots of fruits. pears, apples, cherries, plums, figs, dates and raisins/tobacco. bready malts and yeast as well. very complex with layers of flavors.
M- light and thin with a high level of carbonation. right on cue for the style.
D- easy to finish and almost low enough ABV to session. very nice. ill check this one out again. easily the benchmark for the style.
