4.8/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
12 ounce bottle poured into a 4-ounce tasting glass
A: Light brown/ amber color with thick very light brown/ almost white foamy top.
S: Strong floral aromas with citrus and lemon; passionfruit, tropical fruit.
T: A complex flavor that starts with milk chocolate, then switches to a malty belgian white flavor with citrus, bitterness and a lemony sour finish. There is also a smokey flavor too. Finally, there is a peppery spice that permeates the entire taste.
M: Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation, medium-high acidity, not that bitter. Very smooth.
O: "The flavor of a quad without the cloying"; "complex flavor"; "fruity like a Belgian white, but the feel of a triple or a quad", there is a lot going on with this beer. The flavor starts with a creamy chocolate/ coffee and ends with a sour lemon bite. It was excellent. I enjoyed it tremendously.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
