330ml bottle poured into a De Struise Cervoise.

Appearance: Golden dark yellow with a nice 2" head, that recedes to a nice cap and leaves excellent lacing.

Smell: Floral hops, bready malt, and Belgian candy sugar all equally noticeable.

Taste: Floral hop bitterness up-front with the bready malt and sweet candy sugar coming through in the middle and finish. The hops are more forward when cold the warmer the beer becomes the more caramel is noticeable form the malt and candy sugar.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy and very clean on the palate. The alcohol is completely masked,

Overall: Really nice take on the DIPA style only very Belgian and very De Struise, excellent beer.
