Very smooth. Very Belgian. This is beer candy. Beautiful head, artful lacing. This is the kind of beer that made abbey ales famous. When i taste a beer like this, I want to be a monk

Enjoyed at the Avery Taproom in Boulder, CO during GABF week, 2009. 2007 version. Dark orange pour. Lightly sour orange and lemon aroma. Excellent sour citrus flavor. Oily, slick mouthfeel. I’m surprised at the low ratings, or maybe this has just aged very well, but this was outstanding.

Draught at Avery. Pours clear amber with an average, creamy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, meal), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (sweat, dough) with notes of alcohol (wine) and assorted fruits. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a metallic finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.
