Had in a trois pistols tulip at novare red

The beer is dark, brown In the light but otherwise black. The head is surprisingly light a offense which covers the top of the beer while lacing hangs to the side.

The nose is clearly Belgian, yeast, clove and other spices. The nose is much more aromatic as it warms.

The taste starts almost fruity which lingers and a big yeast clove and spice enter and dry the mouth. Not my favorite style but true and as good as any from Belgium.

Poured from a bomber to a Tulip

A- Deep, dark, hazy copper, 1/2" off white head that quickly fades to lacing

S- Funky, sour cranberries, grapes, and raisins. Apple cider, red wine, banana, sour, alcohol

T- Very sweet. Plums, raisins, grapes, bananas, red wine, sour, candi sugar, medicine, caramel malts

M- Oily, creamy body, crisp carbonation

O- A malty red wine. That's the easiest way to describe this. It's packed with dark fruits, balanced by creamy caramel malts. For 9% abv, the alcohol is very tame and only makes a slight appearance at the end. I'm slowly starting to realize how much i like this style. This is a great example.

Poured into goblet.

A - Beautiful golden, brown, fizzy color. Superb lacing.

S - Complex aromas, lots of yeasty, bready, smells. Hints of alcohol.

T - Very smooth. Same flavors as smells. Balances out very well as it warms.

M - Excellent. Liquid bread.

O - Although not quite as good as some of the other Uni beers, it's still quite good. Will be a part of my rotation. Very nice.
