Came in bottle with no drink by date.
Appearance: Mahogany with a reddish tint, good inch of head. However this included rather large air bubbles, I am not sure if this is due to my pouring or the beer itself. I have never encountered this in other beers.
Smell: Very strong nut aroma with a hint of spice and honey, not very strong.
Taste: A very quick first taste which quickly turns to a strong taste of nuts, malty. Chocolate after taste.
Mouthfeel: Rather thin for my taste, I am not sure if this is typical of the style, I recall a similar reaction toward the Chimay.
Drinkability: Good beer that has been worth drinking. I won't be coming back to it though, too thin and too nutty but a good example of the style.

330ml bottle. Grimbergen Goblet glass. Deep ruby color, red lights. Tan, creamy foam remains as a thin layer on top. Toasted, sugary & red currant aromas with syrup hues. Sweet & sparkling upfront. Medium to light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Hints of grape, spicy & herbal bitterness. Bitter finish & sugary aftertaste. Artificial & cloying.

Had on tap at T.J. Finley's, Bay Shore NY. A good deep brown with head and lacing very ample. It has a wonderfully tart fruity sugar and spice smell, which carries through in the flavor. The brown sugar and raisin taste is balanced by the hops, which evenly accentuate the drinking experience without dominating. The feel is lighter than some others, but that only helps make this a highly drinkable beer. I've had Grimbergen in the bottle as well - either way, solidly recommendable.
