Light golden pour with a small, frothy head that largely disappears fairly quickly. There is some persistent light film on the body, and some minor lacing as it sits in the New Belgium goblet.
Tons of alcohol in the nose, with a sinus clearing effect! There are lots of fruits present too. The fruit is reflected in the taste, with a sherry like alcohol ripeness being the predominant taste. Some darker fruit and some pineapple present as well.
There is no doubt about the alcohol content here, and a little more disguising would probably help.
Quite dry finish which I suspect is in line with the alcohol content, but not especially pleasing.
Nice beer, needs some smoothing out I feel.
