I thought I had this one over a year ago. How sad to be colour challenged or at least colour negligent, confusing blue cap for white. That was so 2005. I've grown so much since then.
Anyway, it's better late than never, so here is the triple from the Trappists at Scourmont Abbey in Belgium. The pour billows up into a rocky merengue of a head, a sniff fills your head with booze, juiciness and rough grainy burlap. The sip is also hot - to be expected at 8% - but also pear juicey, a touch of icing sugar and a touch of the crust of rustic country bread. Dry from the antique slightly lavander herby hops with also a bit of sugar stick in the finish. None over the top but well balanced with a good set of distinct flavours.
Really swell. You could imagine having this with a big whopping pile of coconut cream pie...but what can't you have with that?
