4.3/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Single bottle (best by 07-14-12) poured into a Rochefort Goblet.
Appearance: Poured very slowly to keep the sediment out. The color is a hazy golden orange with a persistent white foam across the top of the glass. Some lacing noted. Plenty of bubbles coming up through the beer when held up to the light.
Smell: All sorts of smells - hard to place any of them. Earthy yeast, fruit, hints of alcohol, cooked pasta, maybe even a hint of animal (reminds me of my cat right now) deep in there. Not unappealing, but weird to me. I detected some hops early on when the beer was first poured, but it went away as it warmed up.
Taste: Equally complex (but tasty) in flavor compared to the smell. Hints of orange and raisin, along with some hops, bready/yeasty flavors, sweet flavors, and a citrus/bitter finish with some lingering aftertaste. Alcohol is not notable at all - hidden in all the other flavors. Quite nice.
Mouthfeel: Can a beer be fleeting in mouthfeel? Well, this one is. It's there with a hint of carbonation on the tongue and you knows it there, but after the swallow I swear it's completely gone. Like I never had it. Cleansing and crisp I think is the way to describe it. Wow - I've never had anything like this before.
Drinkability: For me this is an experience beer. Too strong and expensive to have all the time, but perfect with a meal (French ragout beans with couscous and goat cheese) and for savoring after the meal is done. Very nice overall.
