look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
330ml bottle, best before april 2014
A- Transparent light orange, with very active carbonation visible. 1 finger and a half creamy white head that has awesome retention and lacing
S- Aroma is earthy (yeast), but more on the herbal than on the musty side. Earty but yet fresh with a fruity feel (lemon, orange peel) that also has some spicy/phenolic notes from the alcohol
T- As the smell suggested, freshly yeasty (can't really find better words to describe this) among a fading caramel malt base. Strong spicy/phenolic notes of plain alcohol, clove, maybe pepper, on the back of things. Some light fruity notes as well (orange). Finishes quite dry in spite of the dominant yeast presence, with a pleasant hint of bitterness
M- Medium body with maybe a faint hint of roastiness. Carbonation is really active but never gets harsch, bringing a soft, champagne-like crispness. A warming beer as alcohol is clearly detectable, but never gets annoying
O- May not be your beer if you are not in love with belgian yeast, but i sure am. A complex but yet incredibly drinkable beer

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Light amber. Darker than Duvel and similar in colour to a Czech pils. Haziness made carbonation difficult to see
Smell is of onions, pear drops and candy. To me this, smells very similar to Duvel.
Taste is of malt, sugar, pear, apple with a touch of booze and a warm finish. It is a bit like an "imperial pilsner" beer as it has the same refreshing drinkability of a lager but with more alcohol warmth and more flavours going on. Bit of booze on the finish.
Mouthfeel is fizzy and palate cleanisng.
Overall I found this to be similar to a Duvel with perhaps a touch more caramel sweetness. A very good BSPA.
My mark out of one hundred would be 93.
