Had on tap at Fiddler's.
A- Pours a deep amber red color. One and a half finger tan head shows great retention. Nice sheeting lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- Darker fruits come through in the front of the aroma. The belgian yeast comes through next with a nice blend of cherry and fig. Light alcohol comes through next with a almost sugary sweetness as well. It isn't as complex as I thought it would be but it did smell good.
T- Bready malts and darker fruits come out first. Plum, fig and light raisin are blended quite well. Once this warms the cherries really come out more in the front going against the other darker fruits. Middle of the beer has some caramel bready notes to it along with a light alcohol flavor. Belgian yeast flavors come on out with a sugary sweetness and light fruity malts. Alcohol does come through more in the ending giving a crisp warming alcohol warmth.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Cabronation is good for the style. Darker fruits and a begian yeast are left on the palate. Aftertaste shows alcohol, a sugary sweetness, darker fruits, and caramel malts. Beers overall flavors are well blended together for the style with no off flavors present while drinking this beer. Medium palate drying from the alcohol.
O- This beer is a good rep of the style but I don't see why it always gets such high scores. A clean tasting beer that I would have a couple pints of but it is a once in a blue moon kind of beer for me. ABV is just about right for me to really enjoy this but...yep...an ok beer for me.
