500ml bottle shared with Hab11

Appearance: What?! Holy complexity batman. Hazy, blood orange color. After being held up to the light this beer really shows its true colors. The bottom 80% is blood orange, next 10% is lemon yellow and the top 10% is green like unripe lemon. I'd never seen this before. This is amazing looking.

Smell: Plum, candi sugar; smells like a Belgian abbey ale.

Taste: Very malty. What's with that aftertaste? Cherries, raisins, dark stone fruit. Caramel cherry raisins step forward and are really delicious followed by this very strange, unwanted aftertaste that is really ruining a complex and delicious beer or 'lager wine'.

Mouthfeel: Hard to rate the mouthfeel since the taste is so overpowering. Good overall moutfeel, better than okay.

Overall: Overall this beer was such a disappointment. It starts off stellar. The appearance is truly exceptional. I had never before seen a beer with three different colors. The smell is quite delicious and inviting. The taste is extremely complex and has many wonderful notes but then the aftertaste comes in and completely ruins this beer. The 14% is masked quite well considering 14% is quite strong but I just don't know. I bought two bottles mid-way through December; one I gave to my brother in law for Christmas who drank it right away and raved about it. The second I aged and we both reviewed it tonight, two months later. He was surprised at how much it changed. I was really impressed by a lot about it but it really fell short in the end. It's too bad. Maybe next year I'll buy one fresh and drink it right away.
