GLASS: Chimay Goblet
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
BOTTLING DATE: 04-23-08

Pours an exceptional clear golden amber color. Minimal head that retains a light lacing all the way down.

Smell is almost non-existant. Very light notes of honey and malt.

Tastes of honey and sweet maltiness. Light notes of sweet grapes. (Slight warming affect, but I'm not sure if that is the alcohol content or the saffron. Does saffron do that? It doesn't FEEL like alcohol heat.) Nicely floral tasting with a tiny bit of hidden hops on the back end.

Feels good in the mouth, but it is perhaps a bit too thin. A bit more carbonation might help it, possibly.

A very easy drinking beer. Due to it's sweetness and 9% alcohol content, it probably wouldn't lend itself to drinking more than one or two in a sitting.
