urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 Im surprised that this does not rate higher. This beer represents everything I like about Belgian beer and all of those qualities that American brewers cannot seem to replicate when brewing their own versions of classic Belgian styles. My sample was soft and subtle, with orchard fruit flavors, blunt hops and yeasty notes. Some of the flavors that I find in the great abbey beers like Rochefort. My second sample was no disappointment, but this time I definitely noticed some wild watermelon notes I didnt get the first time. Great stuff this.
