330ml bottle poured into a tulip by freshness date.
Upon the pour, it yields a deep golden showcase with massive fluffy white crown that stands with exceptional retention. Let the time fly, the head slowly sinks to decent foamy layer covering atop along with plenty of spotty and patchy lace. Rather high carbonation pushes the wave of eternal bubble to run actively towards the crest.
Unique aroma from yeast by a combination of a fruity, estery, phenolic and spicy note also with a trait of dough and malt residing.
Besides of the malt in the background, there are a sweetness and fruitiness building up from its fruity ester that also generates some tartness and sourness cut through the edge of the palate sensation. Complexity and balance are derived by a load of phenolic spice. Alcohol is slightly warming and sweet but is well concealed while hops reveal at last with a slightly bitter end.
Creamy smooth mouth feel from its sturdy carbonation, the body is medium to bold with some lively crispness and a dry finish.
Great brew without any question, there are many details in many aspects to get as a gimmick, not even the beer quality itself but also with the unique label and bottle design. Love that.

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%

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.
