Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. Label on the base reads "bottled with love 3 1913".
A: Hazy, caramel-colored body with 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Ok retention. Light lacing.
S: Sweet malt with a bit of spice, honey, brown sugar. Light noble hops. Some fruit - I detect apple, tangerine/orange. Faintly floral with some touches of earthy funk.
T: Lightly sweet, fruity malt up front with development of a moderate hop bitterness. Semi-dry finish. No significant alcohol presence. Slight tang on the aftertaste.
M: Moderate carbonation with a nice moderately-full body. Nice creaminess on top. Fills nicely.
O: Pretty well balanced all around with some nice flavors/scents happening. A bit malty, a bit fruity, a bit hoppy. Solid take on the style, although the hopping feels distinctly American. Better than I remember - I feel some age has improved this one. Good stuff.
