fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Viti, Vancouver; bottled 2013-07-10
Beautiful mahogany color with red hue, creamy beige head. Deep aroma of caramel, with delicate fruity Belgian esters, ripe apple, and a late impression of chocolate; later a tiny whiff of ammonia yeast appears. The mouthfeel is still quite lean, and smooth, the sweetness is rather minimal; it has a good malt and caramel flavor, with some candi sugar, and those delicate Belgian fruity esters; the bitterness is really on the low side, maybe too much, hence the final is a bit too short. Spices? Not really.
A true Belgian Strong, a good pleasure for winter days.
There is some seriously good yeast job here.

Slightly reddish-brown. Cloudy. Deep fruity notes (almost tomato, but also beet and plum) with light chocolate. Big tangy fruits (tomato, dark fruits). Kind of tart in the finish. Decent, but shattering no earth.
