I’ve been drinking this one for so long I had just assumed I posted a review up at some point. So this is going to be short and to the point, but really what more do you need to know other than: it’s fantastic. Delicious. Drink it. For the price, the accessibility, and above all the quality this can’t be beat.

Pours a thick, dark ruby-burgundy with light foam. Wonderful bouquet with stone fruits dominating. The flavor shares an equal profile, with some plum and fig as well as a date-like sweetness standing out. What I find remarkable is how smooth (and smoothly sweet) this is. I mean, almost velvety. While not unusual I forget. (Belgian Strong Ale is not as clearly defined a category in my mind as say a dubble or triple and the wide variation is part of the reason.) This one won over some new converts recently and I can’t wait to share some more soon.

A- pours very dark brown with about a finger of light tan head that is very bubbly, as opposed to foamy. Almost no lacing.

S - Bold smell of fruits

T - Sweet with a lot of fruit flavor, especially grapefruit and grapes

M - Very smooth, the carbonation really stands out

O - I love the feel of this beer from start to finish. The flavors are very crisp and refreshing, and surprisingly well-balanced given the alcohol level of the beer. The bubbly carbonation makes this beer stand out from other Belgians I have tried, and I really enjoyed it.

From a 750 mL bottle this poured a dark brown. The smell was of citrus and fresh fruit. Carbonation was sharp like Champagne. The taste was oak-y and nutty with hints of freshness and citrus that the smell suggested. While still being a strong dark ale, this feels lighter than and crisper than others.
