Eleventh Beer Of Christmas

The 12 Beers of Christmas is a little tradition I started last year in which I treated myself to 12 different beers, one each day. It celebrates the incredible taste and variety that can be found in beers around the world and just a few klicks from my doorstep.

The eleventh beer of Christmas is the Troubadour Magma, a Belgian Triple IPA 9% ABV. Brewed & bottled by Br. The Musketeers B-9910 Ursel, Belgium. The Troubadour Magma is a Global Beer Network beer. (Hello, Johnny Fincioen!)

My impressions: Thick white head, lasting. Puffy, airy head like clouds. Sticky lacing all over the glass. Colonies of bubbles.

Aroma of the head is sour yeast. Once head settles down, more fruity.
Taste is strong and sweet, spicy, very malt forward. Finishes a touch hot, alcoholic. Pleasant bitterness.

Color is cloudy amber. A touch syrupy. Very tasty, a little different than most Tripels.

Official write-up: Amber ale, re-fermented in the bottle, with a mild bitterness, hoppy aroma, and a light, fruity malty spiciness. White head.
