4.25/5  rDev +2.7%

A: Dark brilliant orange copper. Sticky lacy light tan head the left a solid foam ring as it sat.

S: Alcohol and sweet grain. Wheat and some moldy cheesy yeast.

T: Woody, cedar and leathery earthy and rich. Sweet grainy mash flavor fills the palate with rich caramel and even a bit of balsamic reduction. Golden raisins. Boozy and bread yeast aftertaste. Crisp carbonation and zesty finish is nice but not enough to squelch the sweetness, but still good. Slight saltiness through the finish.

M: Finishes long with a mouth watering sweetness despite the crispness towards the end.

O: Quite delicious. More wine like than anything. However still very refreshing.

Im a fan of standard gulden draak so I was looking forward to the opportunity to smag this one. Poured from a 11.2oz stubby bottle into a teku. The bottle was in the fridge for over 24 hours and yet it gushed as the cap pried off. Regardless, it appears a polished clear copper color with a yellowish stained cap. A huge frothy head comes ripping out the bottle and maintains with a large bubble composition. This looks over-carbed but fades quick.

The aroma is sweet like candy or better yet beet sugar with a tinge of alcohol and herbal hops. Not much maltiness from the nose, just a sugary sweet scent. Also, the yeast contribution seems lost. Surprisingly, despite being grosely over-carbonated, there does not appear to be any off-character or detriment to the smell.

The taste is sweet yet solvent with booze. A bit of yeasty aspect is present with a flavor of clove mixing with a suggestion of banana and earth. There is a lasting herbal bitterness and booze with almost a plastic aspect across the back. Whereas the nose was without fault, the taste on this seems off in the aftertaste.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with an effervescent amount of carbonation that is quite a bit overdone. It id a warming beer overall and I get the feeling that my bottle might be off due to the plastic hint and over carbonation. I was sadly let down by this beer and probably would not revisit it again.

Been passing up on trying this beer for a very long time.

Great malty tone to this with a distinct and consistent sweet edge. Way too easy to drink. Strikes me much more as a strong amber ale, but who cares. It's a nice hearty ale that carries mellow, yet pointed, sweet tones. Like I said, way too easy to drink. A great beer.
