Game Day Beer Review: Brouwerij Van Steenburghe Witches Brew Blond Tripel Ale
(9.30% ABV). Poured into a wine glass, Witches Brew appears bright orange with a huge headful of white foam that stays and stays...and stays. I get hops on the nose, as well as a slight sense of Belgian sweetness. It's got a light-ish mouthfeel, and is decently carbonated. Witches Brew has a sweet taste -- maybe too sweet? -- and a melange of spices and alchohol are clearly present; I get toffee and honey, too. It's not bad: B+.
