330 ml bottle purchased from Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam for roughly fifteen US dollars, only one batch of this stuff was made to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hotel Mon Bijou in Belgium's West-Vlaanderen, this is what I brought the new year in with along with a few other treats, reviewed from notes, poured into my Westvleteren chalice, color is a cloudy blonde yellow, big 1 1/4 inch creamy white head that lasts for what seems like forever, nice retention, good lacing too, aroma is very fruity with various kinds of apples, lots of other fruits including berries and milder citrus tones, also some soft malt in the background, taste is quite sweet but hoppy in the finish which helps things really balance out, like the fruit characteristics and how they mellow when it warms, mouthfeel is both sweet and dry at the right times, very full body for its style, taste lingers, nice amount of carbonation, could drink a lot of this stuff, light on the stomach, not overly sweet with the Belgian yeast, well crafted beer that needs to be made again, check this out if you get the chance, recommended
