Review number 400.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Bronze, clear, one and a half finger head, good retention with lots of lacing
clinging to the side of the glass.

S: Fruity, boozy esters, some cherry.

T: Hits you with the trademark Van Steenberge yeasty fruity sweetness, followed up with a hard hitting boozy kick, strong notes of brandy.

M: Minimal carbonation, heavy chewy texture, the booze made it burn.

O: Basically this was brandy thinned out with water, a really heavy sipping beer, the booze took away attention from anything else, slightly disappointing offering from one of my favorite breweries, I hope age can mellow this beer.

Dried cherries and cranberry. Fizzy carbonation. Alcohol at the end is slightly medicinal

Look: poured with fluffy, quickly-dissipating head. deep golden to amber color. for some reason, i remember the color of GD of being pitch black.
Smell: apple juice, some pears
Taste: like a dry apple-pear juice, bit of grape juice, with a hint of alcohol warmth aftwards. may be a hint of vanilla. very subtle herbal touch at the very end. seem very simple.
Feel: finishes very dry. very drinkable.
Overall: i had a expectation of complex beer, but this was very simple beer. not too bad.
