3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Huge grape fruit note. Alcohol sweetness. Plum... maybe a hint of banana as well.
A: Super dark reddish brown. Huge head.... (but not like from Regular Show...)
T: Taste is actually pretty weak... although not off-putting. Super subtle flavors of grape, malt, clove a bit maybe? Alcohol is huge in the finish. There’s not anything wrong with it, per se, but it just doesn’t bring anything big. It’s odd with all the light flavors that the alcohol isn’t out of control (well it is a little bit but not bad...)
P: Very dry on the palate. Very very winelike: subtle flavors. Delicate. Medium body. Sits well.
Overall this beer is strange.... for the style this is killer, but as just a beer, it’s ok. The beer is extremely controlled but are also very very light. Drinks like an champagne with a tick more must.
Flavor is dark dry fruit, heavy spice, a bit of alcohol (but not too boozy). Effervescent mouthfeel. Good. gripweed57 (2912) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2017

Généreuse, caramel, finale assez longue sur les fruits noirs (pruneaux ) reglisse. KevinReddirt (226) - Midland, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2017
The cork to the 750 ml bottle came out with a distinct pop. Great appearance, a very dark body with a red tinge through the light and a frothy beige top, long lasting. I smell yeast, cane sugar and a little floral. A great entry. The taste is less so. I get some maltiness and a light touch of ripe fruit. It finishes with a surprising dry bitterness. You could do worse with a Belgian style, just not real thrilling here.
