Poured a reddish copper color in an Orval trappist glass with no head.

At first, the aroma was not strong- light fruit. As the beer warmed up, stone fruit was very prominent.

This is a light bodied beer with very little carbonation.

Taste: outstanding. Stone fruit, spice. A singular approach to the a Belgian strong ale.
The alcoholic finish is very light, and the light body is deceiving- this is 9.5% ABV.
It's a real sipper which takes time to drink and contemplate.

One of the best Belgian Strong ales I have tasted. Very different approach. I will buy a bottle to cellar.
