Drank from a 1pt. 9.4 fl.oz./750ml bottle purchased at Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA
Best before 10-19-14
Served in a tulip
The beer poured a hazy, dark crimson-amber and was topped by a four-finger, fluffy, light tan crop of froth. The head dissipated to a thin film and eventually turned into a lasting ring. Streaks of lacing trickled down the sides of the glass.
The nose was amazingly interesting and unique. I can always spot this beer from a mile away. Super spicy and phenolic. Tons of clove and allspice. Fruity. Strong Belgian yeast notes. After a few minutes, the nose turned incredibly powdery and dry. As the head dissipated, the powdery notes subsided and the spicy and fruity qualities again dominated.
Compared to the nose, the taste was a bit of a letdown. Bready, toasty malts appeared on the front end. Good amount of yeasty, spicy and phenolic notes. Touch of tartness in the center. As the beer moved along the palate, the flavor profile became a bit empty. The beer finished crisp, dry and slightly bitter with a surprising amount of earthy hops.
The mouthfeel was astonishingly light and fluffy on the palate. Once the liquid hit my tongue, it quickly turned into an effervescent fizz.
Maudite has always been one of those beers that I recommend to people who want to delve into the craft beer world. This is a really solid offering available at a remarkably affordable price.
