Poured our of bottle into glass. Cost was not worth the taste. Sour fruit is all I can taste even after an hour. Not my kind of beer. Prefer IPA/porter so I may be a little spoiled. Not into fruity tastes.

Poured nice caramel w light head.

Smell-sour
Taste-sour fruit

Poured a three finger pillowy light caramel head into a duvel tulip, great retention and lacing with a deep brown au jus color.

Sweet barley malt, yeasty sour dough bread, dark fruit.

Taste is sweet malt, belgian yeast and sugar, white wine grapes and figs, cherry, hint of chocolate candy. Medium body with some carbonation. Still very smooth and not overly bitter. Sweet and dry.

A classsic!
