Wonderful flavor. Smooth start with nice Carmel and fruit back end. The only down side is that's a little thick on the tongue, but that's very minor. Other dubs and trips are overly sweet, The Draak isn't. Would love to find bars that have it on tap.

A: Pours an off white, slightly Irish cream in colour that was 1 inch think that then settled to a film on top. Beer is a deep blood orange colour, clear with no haze or particles.

S: Dark fruits, slight spiciness, some tart apple, sweetness with a hint of alcohol.

T: Tart at the beginning, some raisin - sweetness - slight bubble gum in the middle. Finishes fairly dry, crisp, alcohol warmth.

M: Med-full bodied, crisp, high carbonation cleans up the palate. Dry finish and slight alcohol to it.

O: For a 10.5% beer this does not feel like it. Very well balanced, clean belgian yeast, carbonation makes it great to clean the palate. This beer would go great with blue cheese, olives, pickled eggs.

4.01/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Chimay chalice.

Appearance- Dark hazy brown with one finger fluffy white head that shows no sign of going away.

Smell- Belgian yeast, malts, apples, slight hop presence, clove.

Taste- Malts, light hops, spice. Some darker fruit flavors. Nice lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Very bubbly. Some boozy warmth. Medium bodied.

Overall- Wasn't what I was expecting. Still good, but not my favorite.
