Full disclosure, I'm enjoying this on a Saturday night.
The type of beer this is, it needs to be enjoyed over a longer
period of time...aka, not at work.
Also, at 10.5% ABV, it's a sipper.
I'm also letting it warm.
Look- A rich copper color.
Smell- Passion fruit. Belgian yeast. Alcohol.
Taste-Hard to sift through the taste because of the carbonation
and heat but I get a sweet fruit taste through the fizz along with the yeast.
Mouth-Sweet. Medium bodied. Lots of carbonation (which surprised me).
Good amount of heat as well.
Overall- Quadrupel Ales are out of my pallette range right now.
Tripels probably are as well. With that said, this style is not a favorite of mine.
The carbonation was a bit much for me and the yeast overwhelmed everything
else for flavor. Don't hold it against the beer that the taster wasn't up to the task
though. Find a bottle, sample it, and let me know your thoughts.
