#101 Beers of Fame

Served in a La Chouffe tulip glass. Amber colored with a long-lasting, rocky, white head. Nice lacing down the glass. Fruity pear and orange aroma with a light peppery spice. Wonderful balance in the flavor. The fruit, spice, and alcohol are all there but neither the malt nor the hops are too strong. Medium bodied and a bitter finish. Easy to drink despite being fairly complex.

I avoided this beer unintentionally for quite some time but will no longer do so. A truly well crafted brew. Paired well with a big pot of mussels.

Good appearance. Cloudy ambet with good head and lacing.

Aroms is pears and onions and subtle spicy notes.

Taste is pears and onions with spivy belguan yeast. White grape notes combine with wheat beer-esque banana flavours for a subtle but complex and delicious belgusn string ale effect. This is similar to duvel but a little different. Definitely worth a visit and would like to try the 750ml bottle rather than my 330ml serving to further explore this well balanced and sophisticated ale.

Very good.

90/100
