750 mL corked & caged tyical Unibroue affair. Thanks go out to Josh for the trade just before this made it to Atlanta!
Poured this baby into the Duvel tulip. Celebrating 400 years of settlement of Quebec City. Pale, honey orange body as expected. Large head that falls back to give spotty, light head.
Nose and tastes are as expected with simple Belgian yeast notes, mild alcohol and sweetness in the finish. Light medicinal/herbal notes too.
Some non-ripe, crunchy pears in there too.
This is a typical Belgian strong pale but also provides a lot of light drinking character. The sweetness IS there but it is not at ALL cloying or heavy. Easy to quaff.
Easy drinking amongst the spice (herbal) notes a delicious example of the style. I knew I would love this and I was not disappointed.
