This is from my 365 Bottles of Beer for the Year calendar. I had to share to get your comments. I figured this beer would be familiar to many of you. Every beer's description uses equally flowery language... What do you think???

"This hazy, dark-gold trippel’s actively fizzy bitterness fills the mouth and stays in the aftertaste. A sharp, malty aroma pops up after several sips, followed into the swallow by a light cirtrus-fruit presence. Hints of bitter nuttiness nicely pair with the malty component. The pure-white head leaves fine sheets of Brussels lace inside the glass. A perfumy clove aspect emerges toward the finish of this sturdy, enjoyable ale."

As mentioned on another thread, this calendar has a good deal of poor information.

I think one senior poster described it as "that piece of crap"
Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is
better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Yeah, but it's missing Klein's classic description of the "mid-bottle" taste!
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

I'm also sick of reading the word "presence"
