This thing is way to carbonated! I tried nine different ways of pouring this into a glass and every time I ended up with a glass full of foam. When I removed the cage around the cork the freaking cork blasted off and bounced off my ceiling. This was sitting in my bar for a week so it's not like someone secretly grabbed it and shook it 1000 times before I decided to drink it. The taste is decent but I only got about one glass from the bomber due to the massive amount of foam.

Bottom Line: Foam blast nothing more!

good aroma and taste. nice balance of hops,etc.Good grain expressed. Enjoyed the rich taste. Very nice Belgian style beer with golden color. Odd in that when I opened it after a day in the cellar, the cork shot to the ceiling. Way too much carbonation!!! Maybe I had an unusual bottle.Big head.
