3.98/5 rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: very hazy amber hue with a surprisingly high effervescence and a thin finger of fizzy ivory foam with very nearly no retention: head subsided to oblivion in about 20 seconds. Stylistically OK but aesthetically disappointing.
Smell: rich, sweet malt, not unlike a Scottish wee heavy. There's also a fruitiness here that pairs the orchard fruit character of a good Belgian tripel with the banana of a Bavarian weizen. Unorthodox, but I like it.
Taste: big malt flavor with a satisfying alcohol sting. There's not a lot of complexity here beyond some alcohol fruitiness, but the malt is a real wallop befitting the ABV and its stylistic companions (a wee heavy or malt-centric tripel). I like it.
Mouthfeel: big body with a good level of carbonation and a nice creaminess. Good for the style and good in general.
Overall: this is a beer that just happens to suit my taste. It doesn't have the crazy complexity of, say, a JW Lees vintage ale, but it has the big, face-crushing malt you might find in two of my favorite styles: tripel and wee heavy.

Appearance is a brownish copper with a half finger of head. The head dissipated rather quickly. The nose had the slight hint of sweetness. The malt flavors are not nearly as hearty as they should be considering the style. The lightness of the malt makes the alcohol tastes strong and intrusive. The only real highlight of this offering is the trace of dark fruits in the flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
