Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.
A – Cloudy deep amber with a glorious two-finger head of thick foam. Fantastic lacing of minute white bubbles.
S – Belgian yeasts with some fruity esters, but also a bit of metallic astringency. Unexpected.
T – Tastes follows the smell, but with a stronger malt presence than hinted at in the nose. A bevy of tastes here; Belgian yeasts give familiar fruity esters of banana and clove, with some residual sweetness from the malt. Bittering hops kick in toward the end bringing some balance. A slight sour note that I would attribute to the active yeast strain. (Not necessarily a bad thing in this beer) Also a hint of spiciness in the finish. (Coriander?)
M – Fizzy. Medium bodied. Finish lingers on the tongue; the exact opposite of “dry”.
O – This is a quintessential Belgian ale, with all the good and bad that represents. Not a fan of fizzy beers with a slight sourness? This one probably isn’t for you. Love Belgians? This one is probably right up there with the best. I fall somewhere in-between, which is to say that I enjoyed it, but probably would not buy again as traditional Belgians are not one of my favorite styles.
