I am writing this from notes. I have the bottle before me as something of a holy grail in my hunt for the perfect beer at the perfect price. I has bought some at $2 a bottle and thought it was stupendous, because...
... not a huge nose or flavor, but a good flavor, slight malt and fruitiness. Better than average at this price
... good pour and nice looking bottle.
... mouthfeel and drinkability are very connected to me, a good sensation in the mouth is a good sensation in the gullet, and this one left me desparately seeking more.
... amazingly heady!!! In my memory this is more like 7% maybe 7.5%, maybe not, but I do think the easy drinking nature of the brew leads to a quick buzz.

Maybe at the price I paid, this is the holy grail.

Someone kindly left a sixer of this in my fridge after a murder mystery party. Poured a bottle into a Chimay goblet.

A -- Murky brownish body with lots of stuff floating in it. Tan head that pours into a couple fingers but recedes to a thin layer with unevenly sized bubbles on top. Good lacing.

N -- Yeasts. Some bubblegummy kind of smells. A little fruity.

T -- Good. Not overly strong or complex, but tasty and representative of the style. Has almost a sour cherry taste at points.

M -- Spicy on the lips and smooth on the palate.

O -- A good dubble.

Cheers!

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.
