Finally got around to this, one of Trillium’s regulars. Hazy maroon body with a small off-white head. Aroma is alcohol and sweet fruits, flavor is similar but with the addition of some delicious sweet caramel. Thick and frothy mouthfeel. Great domestic Belgian.

Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. Clear amber orange red color. Bigger off-white head. Splotches and bits of lace, looks solid. Stronger carbonation, though. Bigger body, kind of slick carbonation. Light slick. Caramel malt, mild spiciness. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some mild heat. OK musty caramel strong ale. More heat than necessary.
