beer math for today:
Quad + Oak barrels = Blasphemy

eyes...
sizzle is audible on this belgian fajita, off white head rises to one full finger in my trusty duvel tulip, good steady flow of carbonation takes it's time wandering up from the depths, light chestnut in hue with hints of burnt orange. pretty nice...

nose...
first hint is alcohol, there is also a fruity character in there, something like pears or a mild apple scent, in the mix is a bit of a doughy character, even deeper is just traces of some sourness (like a lambic actually). this smells really nice, nothing is totally dominant and after sniffing it now for some minutes the alcohol punch I originally sensed has faded, this belies the alcohol content, if you can try hard enough you can pick up a pinch of the oak.

taste etc...
very sweet on the first try, and the alcohol makes itself known down the gullet, hell, this is already warming my entire digestive tract, woah boy! the carbonation is pretty prickly here, almost distracting for the style, because as soon as the prickle exits mouth left you are barraged with the sweetness, this is pretty thick, actually thicker than you think it is while you are sipping it, it leaves behind syrup on your tongue, I find the flavor perhaps a bit too aggressive, this one needs to mellow out, right now it drinks like a tidal wave, sure, you like water but not 30 feet of it.

verdict?
the oak is there so it adds a nice touch but this is a tough one to handle right now. I'd pick up another bottle and sit it down for another year. (1,561 characters)
