Thanks to the bartender at The Twisted Kilt for the free pour
Pours brown, ruby hints in the light, fluffy white head, slightly sticky with some lace. Smell is dark fruit in alcohol, plum, raisin, cherry, light alc. and yeast. Taste is dark fruit, ripe cherry, yeasty, alc that comes and goes, brown sugar, plum and yeast. Mouthfeel is a little thin, medium carb and medium weight. Overall this isn't bad not stellar but can hold its own. The dark fruit character is quite nice here.

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.
