Big coarse foam on the initial pour in the wine glass. Clear amber color.

Quite a fullsome Belgian flavor with the sweet yet bitter yet dry complexity. Fruity with mango quite distinct, some peach, and a pomegranate finish. Quite dry after some sipping. A mineral aftertaste. Some bitterness as you sip. A pleasant, interesting brew with plenty of Belgian character and that tart, darkly tinted fruitiness.

From the 750 ml corked bottle bought at Whole Foods in Foggy Bottom. I don't know if this is a 2013 bottling or older, but label says #82 with a (best by?) date of 4/10/15.

A - Two plus fingers worth of lively effervescent tan colored head with a faint orange tinge that is comprised of lots of big chunky bubbles that is slightly fluffy overall... Minimal retention... Once settled, there is a thick rich creamy lacing that is very inviting... The color is a deep dark resiny amber... A cyclone of small bubbled carbonation swirls in the middle of the glass...

S - Brown sugar... Raisins... Honey... A bit of melon... Sweet oranges... Caramel... Candied sugars... A hint of fig... Very sweet, put never overpowering or cloying...

T - A bit boozy to start... A lot of the sweetness alluded to by the nose is absent on the palette... Slightly medicinal... A hint of orange zest... A bit of honey... Fruit cake... The booziness returns on the finish and lingers for a while...

M - On the heavier side of medium bodied... A bit dense... A bit thick... Moderate carbonation... A little stickiness... A slightly dry boozy finish...

D - A definite sipper... Boozy and bit overpowering at times... Not a bad beer by any means, but a bomber is a lot for one individuals... Lots of strong flavor that could stand to be mellowed out a bit... This Brewer's Art offering has lots of good things happening, but there are just enough rough edges to make this one nothing more than decent...
