June 24, 2015

11.2 oz bottle, tulip glass

A – Very dark amber with high clarity. A couple inches of light tan foam head, thousands of tiny bubbles, with moderate-long retention.

S – Raisins and cherries, reminiscent of cherry pits, are moderate in strength. Some caramel and sweet toffee. A small hint of lightstruck/skunk but this fades as the beer opens up. Additional fruit, peaches and pears, follow. Hops are herbal and bright.

T – Rich bread crust and golden cracker malt flavor. The cherries are more subdued here, with herbal, slightly floral hops. A hint of cola and rum.

M – Fairly high carbonation with a medium-full body. Slightly juicy up front, but well attenuated and dry towards the finish. Mildly sweet with a hop-bitter snap at the end.

O – My first beer from this esteemed brewery, and a fine offering it is. Fairly clean with some pleasant fruit flavor and excellent mouthfeel. Seems like a dubbel-lite, to some extent.

Smell isn't powerful but does have hints of fruit. Dark amber orange in color. Tastes of malt with small hint of apple and pear. Mild in taste but drinkable.
