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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
