St. Sebastiaan Grand Reserve

St. Sebastiaan beers are from the Br. Sterkens Meier in Belgium. It is described as a top-fermented abbey ale.

This 10.0% ABV beer pours a dark golden orange, somewhat copper in color, a touch of haze. There is a large thick, foamy head, billowing high, white in color that leaves thick and sticky lacing down the glass. The aroma is fruity, yeasty, estery, some bubble gum and cotton candy, sweet fermented golden grain. The taste is golden grain and lightly fruity, yeasty, tangy, some alcohol apparent. It is finely and intensely carbonated, stinging the mouth a bit. It actually drinks fairly light for its 10% ABV. This is quite nice, but not mind-blowing in any way.
