Golden amber and thin white head with no retention. Lightly fruity, Belgian sugar and yeast aromas. Fruit and light yeast flavors, vinous and oak followed with a light spice and lightly dry cracker finish. Thick, robust slickness yet not syrupy and a light pleasantly fuzzy mouthcoating.
This beer has a great subtle flavor with nothing overpowering. There is a gentle warming that accents the flavor creating a pleasant drinking experience. The mouthfeel is quite well done as well as it is full-bodied with out the syrupy heaviness. This is a good beer to experience with others, particularly wine lovers.

Amazing. Belgian yeast (actually a pretty light touch) along with some strong sweetness from the malt. Sweet like a good barleywine would be, a sweetness that seems totally natural in this context. Most beers that are in the style don't choose to go so sweet, but for this beer it really, really works. Absolutely my new favorite.
