Texas

4.7/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Chimay glass, this is deeply dark ruby-red beer with a modest film of foam across the top. The nose is very nice, featuring a very fruity (cherry-like, but not sweet) dominant scent, and undertones of woodiness and iron. The flavor is truly exceptional, with slight fruity sweetness (this time more ripe grapes than cherry so much), giving way to a deliciously fruity acidity (think granny smith apples), and lingering tartness, but not particularly sour. The mouthfeel is soft with a slight tannic character.

One of my favorite beers, but I've only been able to have it on trips to other states until now, when it has become available in Texas. This is a great beer to be paired with many foods, but it does especially well with certain thai dishes where the sour and/or hot flavors could overwhelm many beers. It's great with pickled foods, and also with tex-mex. A classic.
