750ml bottle poured into a Chimay goblet.
I had this on tap at Carolina Blue months ago and it really surprised me, so hope it's just as good out of the bottle.
AP: Dark amber and rusty orange/red colour with a 1/2" white head that fizzled to a dusting. Moderate lacing when the glass is tilted. There is some sediment/yeast floating in the glass.
AR: Sweet rolls/bread, candied apricot, maple syrup/molasses, vanilla, hint of cinnamon and brown sugar, white grape and caramel. Smells delicious.
T: Not like I vaguely remember it on draft, but this is still a very solid brew. Taste mirrors the nose. The flavours blend nicely. Bit of fruity Belgian yeast mixes in there as well with a soft hint of baking spices.
M: Starts quite crisp and carbonated on the tongue followed by medium body with some creaminess mid palate. Finishes off dry with some lingering flavours for a great aftertaste.
OV: I've had Biere de Gardes that are more Farmhouse than this and like them more than the average person, so for Ommegang to add maple and oak to it just added another dimension to this style. This is a very tasty brew that can be enjoyed either by itself or with food.
