750ml corked and caged bottle #206 received after winning Dyan's Sling Comes Off LIF. Thanks for the chance for this one Dyan!
As stated previously, the cork takes a mega-effort to get out. I was able to do so without a corkscrew but it took some serious doing. It gushed a bit and poured out with a near-glassful of foam. The bottle continued to foam while sitting off on the table, too. However, the glassful of foam dissipated fairly quickly leaving some loose honeycombs and cool lacing. The body is a hazy dark orange.
Aroma is typical of Belgian yeasts, with some clovy, medicinal notes and peppery spices. There are some fruity tones as well.
The sweet candi sugar is the first thing noticed on the taste, along with faint, smooth banana, cloves, coriander and pepper. More sweet fruits stood out as the temperature rose a bit. Very clean mouthfeel with a bit of a sweet/dry finish. A very good beer for special occasions, though the folks at Brewers Art need to work on that gushing issue.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A nice fluffy and off tan and very pinhead even bubbled head. Three fingers tall and settles nicely, with lots of rising fast tan carbonation along the edges. Body color is a nice deep amber almost red, but hints at a rusted burnt orange and quite opaque.
Hints of classic overseas Belgian character, sucrose sweet and lots of toasty brown sugars to match. Some mild clove sensations, warm herbal tea strangely, and soft cinnamon.
Palate comes with expected pleasure. Nice subdued and sweet brown sugar and cinnamon with a good carbonated and dried palate. Crisp almost champagne like but with raisin and fruit density. Noticeably warm but not horrifically boozy though.
Overall, while not a strong pale, it's a textbook Belgian amber pretty much.
