I’m going to skip reviews on the samples of Scratch #33 and #35, since I brought a six-pack of each home (as well as a bomber of the GABF Gold Medal Winner, Flying Mouflan). So, I can do full reviews of those. Since I didn’t buy a six-pack of this, you can probably already guess how this review is going to go. It was also difficult to find info on this beer at all.
Trivia: I literally could not find any information on this brew at all, even on Troegs’s website. It looks like they went from Scratch 33 to 35. So, the only trivia I could find is that this beer is bottle conditioned.
Random: I couldn’t tell what this beer after I tasted it. I had to go up and ask. Not usually a good sign.
This poured with a barely there white head with a yellow, clear body. There was no visible carbonation on the body. On the nose, I got some golden fruit (which should have been a clue it was a Belgian dubbel, but I guess I’m not that smart). The fruit was definitely apricots though. There was also a hint of booze on the nose. The nose was much of the same. There was some booze evident and apricots, dates, maybe even a hint of apple. The finish lingers with some booze and not a lot of fruit. This isn’t bad, but it’s not great either. I wouldn’t search this out.
