3.75/5 rDev -0.3%
750ml bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
A: Clear red-orange in color. Off white head retains fairly well at a half and inch. Delicate patchwork of lacing.
S: Caramel and crust from the malts. Toasted grain too. Juicy berries and some peach and apricot notes. Slightly musty and very subtly spicy yeast remains at an even keel in the background. Herbal and oily/spicy hops have some kick on the nose.
T: Caramel maltiness lays down a coating blanket of flavor. Toasted grains and crust. Juicy fruit tastes of apricot, peach, and suggestions of berries. Very subtle yeasty undertones. Oily, herbal, and spicy hops come out more toward the back end. Sweet finish of caramel and fruit with a subtle lingering spicy hop bite.
M: On the thicker side of medium bodied. Syrupy and coating texture is lifted a little by some firm and prickling carbonation, but not quite enough. Mild alcohol warmth and hop oils.
O: The hop bitterness and flavor comes on a bit stronger than in other examples of the style, but is still never in any danger of usurping the malt character. In fact, the flaw of this beer may be that the body is a little more weighty and dextrinous than it should be, and this makes it less drinkable.

Remarks: One of my favorites. I'd buy it almost every time we went to Cora in Strasbourg. I missed it so much I homebrewed some.
