Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 13/20
Score: **+ /4
Appearance: Thoroughly hazed, dark golden-orange body with a inch of stern-looking, lasting, white foam.
Smell: A big sniff of top-notch, fine quality sugars you’d have to hit up the nearest Whole Foods store for and an instant pop of wafting, nostril-clearing alcohol. Notes of toasted barley grain, stone fruits.
Taste: Lightly toasty malts with a fast flash of grains and a big, rolling sweetness. An agreeable variety of orchard fruits, from apricot to yellow delicious apples to peaches to pears, but all the while some hot alcohol. Light hop character, bitterness, hardly noted beyond the other components. Sweetish, fruity finish with more of the throat-scalding alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: A hot Belgian, bringing to mind their previous hot Belgian, the WB Abbey Dubbel.
