So this was the first thing I hit when I got to the Eulogy Tavern in Philadelphia. and I guess it matched all tastes because, while in the city of brotherly love I opted to drink local- this here's a local penn stater- but the bar itself is belgian- and this one here's not far from that tree.
I guess the pour is unique. served in a proper chalice, the beer was very translucent but dirty. I mean, literally, tonnes of particles of yeast were visible to be suspended within the beer, immotile. For the beer style, I was amazed to see it had little or no head and it left behind cero lacing...for all that yeast, you'd expect to see differently.
Smell was very, very fruity. and on the sweeter side, more of an apricot in honey than a citrus style. and it also hits the nose with its high ABV.
The taste is not as sweet, although no less sweet because of that. Begins off with a sweet mouldy feel sort of apples with a slight acidity to it. equally taken over by discrete hop feeel, it balances out quite neatly and is topped off by a boozy, yeasty feel, making it very well transitioning. The body is rather light and seasonally adequate a mon avis, but it's quite liquored up so this isn't one to pound on.
Overall a brilliant beer from this city, one to look for when there.
