Bought a bottle at Jasper’s in Nashua. This is a pretty tasty brew. Pours deep tea brown, with a little tan head that dissipates quickly. Not a whole lot of nose. Tastes pretty sweet, I got a little fruit and almost candy-flavored. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but overall quite good.

bottle, 100th Belgian beer rated - Finally, I hit 100 beers from a single country other than the USA. It had to be Belgium, the small nation that’s been a giant in the world of brewing for centuries. They make such amazing beers. This one pours dark clear amber with a light tan, dissipating head. The aroma is a light caramel malt that gradually becomes more apparent as the beer warms. The flavor is of sweet caramel malt with chocolate and dark fruit notes. It’s definitely one that should be allowed to warm to cellar temperature or higher as it seems like a very simple beer. That’s best for most beers, but for this one it seemed to make an even bigger difference than usual. The finish is mildly dry with a hint of alcohol.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, this was an excellent double. Although Grimbergen has become increasingly overpriced by the bottle in beer/liquor stores, they make an excellent prodcut. This is a complex double of fruits and spices.

This was quite tarty and sour - apples, chocolate and cherries come through. Not really my cup of tea, but a good beer of its kind.

Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2008
Very dark brown body with a nice soapy tan head. A delightful aroma of sweet malt, lots of fruit, and yeast. A sweet candy flavor that offers complex fruit and some caramel. A tart fizzy carbonation. A fun beer to sample.

Unique69crazy (120) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2008
Delightful chocolate like aroma with a hint of smokiness when the brew is consumed. A very good deep brown color with a hazy tan head. Tantalizing tart with a familiar taste of bittering hops used. Tasted like it needs a bit more time to condition, but nonetheless, it a high quality beer that can be enjoyed by all.

Bottle from Palm Tavern. Pours a brown-red. Smells of sour apples and tastes almost the same. A bit sharpe and sour to enjoy all the time, but glad I tried it.
