a belgian rye imperial pale, sort of a weird idea from the get go, the beer comes though more as a belgian strong, or even as a barleywine than anything else. copper to amber in color, mostly clear, and shoring over an inch of white head but it recedes rapidly. the nose is a combination of belgian yeasts (very fruity), mild rye spice, and alcohol, along with plenty of residual malt sweetness. the flavor is similar, with the yeast backing off just a little bit and the booze really cranking up. the sweetness is too much for me, i cant do even my half of a bomber of this, but i get the rye coming through a lot, which i love, and the apple spice yeast is pleasant as a flavor. this would be a better beer at 7% abv, i have no doubt in my mind at all about that. these beers have all been hit or miss for me, and this one is somewhere in between. i definitely wouldnt buy it again, but i cant rip it too hard either, i think they accomplished what they set out to do, its just a strange mission. if you want a curiously sweet booze bomb with some character, this is your horse.
