4.43/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel tulip>
Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden orange color that is slightly hazy with a thin yet lasting head.
Smell: Extremely sweet aroma with piney hops and lemony herbal notes. Great balanced aroma, grapefruit, slight orange peel and honey.
Taste: Tastes a bit muted for what i was expecting, might be because of the december 2009 bottling. Solid hops bitter bite complimented with a sweet malty backbone that delivers honey and sweet tea like sweetness to balance.
Mouthfeel: nicely carbonated, not overly cloying but definately able to feel the strength of the beer. Hides the 10% well.
Drinkability: Solid. despite the high ABV this is a winner. Great mouthfeel and taste. Too bad this is only out 1 month of the year, but its great. cant wait to try fresh!
Serving type: bottle
