ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2011
3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Lennie’s. Hazy ruby-chestnut pour with a short white head. Red berry nose is explosive, has a prominent yeast component, fruity candy sugar with noble hop rounding. Taste is bittersweet, clean, dry. Aftertaste brings out the bread. Alcohol not apparent to the tongue. Faint tartness. Medium-light mouthfeel, smooth with mild crispness. A surprisingly good, fruity Belgian offering; a bit on the heavy side for a session, but I would (and did) buy more to bring home.
