Poured outta the bomber into the Abbey Ale-appropriate chalice. 1.5 finger head of pearly bubbles atop an amber body. A hue of light shyly smiles through the bottom of the glass.
Mulchy malt whiff that gets sweeter the harder I pull--cherry and red-apple. I smell that Ommegang yeast, which rings up fond memories of many-a-visit to the brewery.
The longer it sits in the open air, the more the fruit comes out and the alcohol dies (fruit's not as present in the taste as the smell, however). Sweet on the front of my tongue, a hop bark on the back, and toffee all over.
Although it takes a while to oxidize, the balance of its parts levels after about 15 anxious minutes. A bomber is the right size, much more would be forced consumption. That being said, I would prefer a generous glass-full with cherry/blueberry/strawberry pie during holiday dessert.
