750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear amber body. Small off-white head. Medium collar and some surface wisps.

Smell - Fruity but kinda chemically. Belgiany sweetness. Some nutty malts.

Taste - More caramel malt dominant, but it's got an intense chemical fruitiness. Bitter caramel malt. A little nutty. Belgian sugars.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium body. Seems boozy.

Overall - Not a pleasant beer. The fruit flavors are not working.

This poured with an immensely filtered cognac color with a quickly fleeting head of fizzy bubbling.

The scent has a spearament like coolness with a bubblegum and clove aroma.

The flavor was interesting as my personal palate picked up some vinegar like tones to go along with sour Apple and some alcohol.

The feel was quite spritzy and effervescent.

I feel like this was simply not suited to my own taste and may be a very good example of the style, unfortunately I can't attest to it.
