chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours clear, red-brown with a generous sized tan head that soon reduces to a thin and irregular coat. Nonetheless, the glass is nicely sheeted when tipped. Aroma: dark fruits with a trace of very ripe banana. Lightly spicy. Flavor: dark fruits with a trace of very ripe bananas and cherries. Faintly spicy. Feel: a strong point. medium+ but soft carbonation. Medium-full body. Dry and light at mid-taste. O: a fine Belgian ale but bettered by a good number of competitors.

A copper-colored beer that has a caramel-sweetness taste and aroma. It's a delicious beer worth trying, and buying again - but drinking it too often might get cloying.
