COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since the early 1600's, the Dutch have attempted to breed a pure black tulip. Many have tried and a few have come close...but none have succeeded. Call it the Holy Grail of the tulip world. In honor of this elusive flower we have brewed this special elixir. We have combined the finest Belgian malt, rare European hops, an authentic Belgian yeast and finally, the brew is dusted with tulip petals. The resulting blend is nothing less than magical.

Its just kinda boring. You get some serious fruit notes, but theyre all very dull. Its body is almost too light making it like drinking a juice or cider. I am just not impressed by this beer. Its very underwhelming.

for a second, the flavor is world class; the beginning of the taste... then gets a littly honey, syrupy, medicinal, messy. nice aroma - floral, honey. the end of taste lowers from what this could have been.

12 oz single bottle from Mollys Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a white head and a touch of lacing. Aroma of fruity esters, banana, clove, alcohol, caramel, toffee and yeast. Similar flavor, with a heavy cloying sweetness. Medium to fully body with a syrupy feel and a sweet finish. OK.
