Poured into a snifter to enjoy this guy.
Appearance - I had no idea what the color would be, I expected a trippel for some reason, came out rich but not dark brown, very pretty. However, the head bubbled away very fast.
Smell - Boozy initially in the smell followed by a very subtle and nice fruit sweetness.
Taste - Boozy up front again, I get hints of fruit and raisins followed by a kind of muted sweetness, with apples lingering on my tongue for the aftertaste. Very complex and subtle, I like it.
Mouthfeel - Heavy carbonated fizz up front and it gets kind of viscous as it sits on the tongue.
Overall - I really like this beer and I am savoring my bottle, it was well worth the money spent on it. I like the complex layering present in taste, smell and mouthfeel. Once again, a great beer, very European.
