Still plowing through the "Beers of Fame" list with aggressive fury!
Served in a Port City snifter/tulip?
A: Poured a very muddy, "Yoo-Hoo"-esque color with a bit more rouge mixed in to boot. The head was spritzy and only slightly off-white in color.
S: Man, I remember a time when I used to hate these Unibroue entries, but over the ages, I've grown to appreciate them and even grow fond of their funky yeast strain. About that yeast strain: Almost sour and with a tinge of rotten apple, pear, and orange. It teeters on the verge of being putrid, but it actually works. Along with an added cocoa component, the nose on this one embodies that.
T: Remarkably refreshing on the finish and it almost has more in common with champagne than beer. The funk of the yeast strain wasn't as prevalent on the taste as the nose, and neither was the chocolate.
M: Spritzy and remarkably chamapagne-like and this one deserves every stitch of its "5" rating I'm giving it in this category. Just enough bitterness to be dangerous, BARELY enough sweetness, and oh that delectable carbonation bill!
O: This one was even better than I remember it. Worthy of a very high recommendation!
