interesting note - i got a 750 ml bottle of this life-affirming jesus juice tonight for 1050 yen, that's about $8.75. i don't know how much this costs back home, but i think this is worth every penny, or yen.
interesting note, part 2 - i don't have the proper glassware for this beer but - as i'm new to the belgian beer scene - i learned a valuable lesson. i poured my wife some in an oversized wine glass, and i served myself in a weizen. after a few minutes, my wife still had this amazing 1/2 inch thick and creamy glorious white - almost styrofoam - head and i had maybe an eighth of an inch around the edge. her wine glass was tattooed all up and down with a wallpaper of lace. it really makes a difference what you serve this beer in. (i know, duh, right? well i was skeptical until that little experiment) regardless, it looks great, golden and wonderful
there is so much going on in the nose i don't know where to start, it's almost like perfume. complex, sweet but also a strong alcohol smell, buttery toast in the background with a nice floral fruity bouquet up front. every sip gives new insight into the world of better beer. my first taste and first review, but i will re-visit this brew soon. this is definitely one for reflection. jesum crow, what an incredible beer!
