$3.99 special price for a 750 mL bottle at Whitlock Package, Whitlock Avenue, Marietta, GA, USA. Poured into the Duvel tulip.
Champagne bottle presentation going beyond just corked and caged with gold foil down the length of the neck and with a dimpled bottom of the bottle. Corked has 11-2003 on it so this is close to three years old.
Apart from the color (another dirty brown opaque, Dubbel type pour) it looks great. BIg head and great lacing. If this had the color of a Belgian Pale I would give it a 5, but for now the dirt color marks it down.
Nose has alcohol but also a tart citrus nature. The citrus is definitely NOT carried through to the taste.
The taste is very sweet and complex. Huge sugars and fruits overlapping one another with a Belgian yeast background makes this a BIG beer. The sweetness will kill it for some people, but if you like sweet, you’ll love this.
A little alcohol burn in the finish. 11%?? It drinks nowhere near that though. This is a very dangerous beer!
At $3.99 for 750 mL this may be the best value beer I have EVER purchased!
