750 mL corked and caged, $6.99 Greens, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Frankly, very disappointing for the style. My Belgian darks need to have much more body than this, and unfortunately this has an acidity and tartness that is completely out of place in my opinion.
Pretty decent looker with a nice tan head and burgandy body. Not much lace, and the head dies quickly – rather too carbonated for the style.
Nose reveals a yeasty fruit, but it lacks the real depth that one would expect. Not much there. The tastes continue the theme. Yeast, acid and a lack of fruit depth. This drinks MUCH closer to an Oud Bruin with a thin body and a tartness all the way through. Not at all what I am looking for in the style. This is especially true considering this is a Christmas/Winter brew.
Not very good.
