Beer Advent Calendar: Day 15

Grimbergen Double Ale
6.5% alc.

Initially this smelled like a very strong blonde ale, but a bit more sour with a unique scent of alcohol. Hmmm, this should be interesting. It has great mouth feel, and the sourness continues through the body. Very smooth, with definite hints of toffee and brandy. Again, the alcohol taste comes through, but not in an over powering way. It is quite pleasant for something so unique and strong tasting. I'm surprised I've enjoyed it as much as I have.

Quite good.
