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

What can I say about a beer that is named after a medical condition that happens to alcoholics after withdrawing? It's great beer compared to other beers of the world, but is marginal good compared to other Belgium Strong Ales. It is definately a hipster beer. It pours bright gold, has a petite head that sticks around a little bit, and stable body (average carbonation). It has a natural taste of grasses, malts, hops, earth, and sweetness, with the yeast taste running major interference. It has an edge to it's tast becuase of the 8.5% ABV, it has malty aftertaste, and is a filling beer.
