The first time I tasted this beer, I must admit I was a bit in a haze. But even then, I realized that I had just tasted the finest beer in my life. Many many months later, and after trying so many similar beers, I still hold fast to giving this beer the title of the Greatest Beer in the World! Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter and a tulip. The appearance and smell were basically the same in both bottles.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy yet glossy burnt orange to ruddy brown color. The head was about a finger’s worth of white foaminess coating the top of the beer nicely. The head gracefully died at a nice pace leaving a nice clingy light foaminess around the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice authentic Belgian spiciness intertwining itself in between sweet malts and even letting in some light oranges to intermingle and dance underneath my nose.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and seemed like it was almost perfectly blended into a really nice flavoring all around.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a sessionability that wanted to show but alas, it could not prove itself to be so. No worries as a sipper, this one danced around my palate skirting a sharpness to pummel but still allowing a nice gentle rolling smoothness every now and again.
Overall, this was an absolutely wonderful offering from Epic more than worthy of having again. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Beautifully golden with a two finger creamy head that reduces to a nice fluffy lace. Smells rich and malty sweet with a bit of banana, bubblegum, and medicine (in a good way). Full nectar with creamy carbonation. This brew is generous with all that malty goodness. The moderate sweetness is offset by a nice acidic twitch which brings a sense of balance. Good aroma to flavor follow-through. The finish lingers. This brew is really quenching my thirst despite it’s heavy on the palate structure. Brainless is true to style and very fresh tasting. dwyerpg (6493) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2012
I’m rating the last beer of my California trip first. This was pretty darn good. Plenty of Belgian triple spiciness and a pretty smooth flavor. Nothing really to complain about here. Good introduction to this brewery.
