Dark amber in the glass. Tart and strong. Flavors of fermented fruit. Tastes like it has a shot of liquor in it, like fruit brandy. Some peach nectar and nectarine flavors. Nicely carbonated without over spritzifying.

Full bodied and very malty in a nice way. Not too much of the Belgian flavors. Roasted malt and fruit cocktail make an interesting combination, and pretty well sums it up. A tasty, strong sipping brew that exhibits the classic jolly weirdness of this brewery.

On tap at the brewpub off Mira Mesa Drive just north of the Miramar industrial corridor.

September 26th, 2013 - Hell's Belge looks Luke mud water, a dark brown soup with swirls of lighter brown sediment, but the smell is clearly sweet. Caramelized root vegetables like carrots give off a Maillard reaction heavy scent, but the palate is thin and watered down. There's notes of roasted sweet potatoes in there, and maybe some wheat bread dolloped with light molasses against a slight alcoholic buzz, but the taste isn't as engaging as the aroma promised.
