Weyerbacher X Decadence
I received a bottle of Weyerbacher X Decadence in a beer trade, the tenth anniversary beer from Weyerbacher and released in 2005. The beer pours a dark amber color with a fizzy and bubbly off-white head that recedes rapidly. The aoma consists of a large helping of sweet honey, lemon peel, lime, and spices. The taste is very sweet and smooth with Belgian yeast, spices, honey, banana, lime, and lemon. The finish comes on strong with the bite of alcohol and dries out that mouth. The alcohol content is 13.0% ABV. I felt this beer took on the properties of a good tequila, sans the alcohol content, but was quite delicious. It was a little on the sweet side, maybe due to the age, but the one glass I drank was enjoyable.
