Sundays…the end of the weekend. How depressing. I only have a half a day of work tomorrow because I have to go in for a safety course, which isn’t bad. And tonight is the return of “The Walking Dead” which Kate and I are very excited for.
Style: Belgian IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This light ambercoloured Piraat with full foam head overwhelms with an aroma of bitter, spicy, malty and alcoholic scents. What follows is a perfect combination of malty, sweet and hopbitter tastes, after which you are drowned in a very long, semi-sweet after taste with bitter undertone. A tremendous digestive beer that, given a good maturation in the cellar, has a great evolution but delights your tastebuds with a tasty wild dish or a foie gras…! With ripe and elegant cheese, such as Remoudou, Wynendaele, Trou d’Sottai or Vieux Chimay;”
Random: I miss Shane in “The Walking Dead.” I know why they had to kill him, but I liked him as a character. Lori on the other hand, not so much…
This poured with a huge and very fluffy, four finger cream-colored head. It dissipated slowly and left huge amounts of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy dark orange with lots of visible carbonation. The nose had some tartness, spice and citrus coupled with candi sugar. I got some Belgian yeast as well. The taste was very complex. I got yeast, pepper, clove and some biscuit. I also got bitterness and green apple and tartness with a touch of funk. The booze wasn’t overly present, but you could get a hint that it was there. The body was heavy with lots of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with spice and a touch of booze warming. This was definitely a solid Belgian brew with lots of flavor and complexity. Grab one if you haven’t had it.
