Review - Clipper City Brewing Company's Holy Sheet Uber Abbey Ale
"Just released our newest seasonal – Holy Sheet. From the centuries-old tradition of Belgian Abbey monks comes our Uber Abbey Ale (9%). Aromatic and very full bodied, the beer will pour a deep burgundy in color and feature a rich, robust depth of malt character. Grab a line – Holy Sheet! – or you might be swept overboard." -- Clipper City
Pours a ruby red hue with minimal head that dissipates down to nothing, with very little carbonation. As quickly as the head forms, it\'s gone leaving a very still body behind. No lacing whatsoever as the beer swirls around the glass. Aroma is subtle with some sweet malts and soft alcohol, with a little bit of sour on the back end. Initial taste is sweet but quickly moves to a sour alcohol finish that lasts for quite a while. Medium bodied, there is minimal carbonation in the mouthfeel, with some creamy textures, very smooth and very balanced, very enjoyable on the palate.
