11.2 ounce bottle served very cold in glass beer challis @ Small Bar in Chicago
A) Pours a beautiful bright straw gold with puffy white head. Appearance is cloudy & thick with suspended carbonation and yeasties
S) Waft of powerful floral & herbal scent. Lemon-orange citrus and strong alcohol.
T) I was surprised by pine-bitter hops -- the floral-herbal dominates the sweet caramel I expected from this Trappist Belgian classic.
M) Seemingly perfect carbonation adds to this smooth & complex brew that you know is pacticed, time tested quality
D) An excellent beer but the bitter & funky-pine hops (I believe) will limit it's appeal.
