Overall: 4.5 out of 5, grainy sweet malt flavor, Belgian yeast aroma
Category: Belgian Golden Strong Ale
Appearance: Hazy gold, white head with mild persistence
Aroma: Light pepper and grainy malt aroma
Mouthfeel: Medium Light to Medium body, dry finish, hides ABV very well
Flavors: Mild sweet malt flavor dominates the palate, no noticeable bitterness. I would put this just a touch sweeter than a classic Belgian Tripel.
Aftertaste: Nice mild sweet aftertaste that doesn’t linger.
Food Pairing: I think this would be cool with semi-sweet breaded dessert, even a simple cookie. The sweetness would cancel each other out, leaving the beer unbalanced showcasing the carbonation and ABV.
I encourage you to visit the Wicked Weed website to find out more about this awesome NC gem of a brewery.
