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.

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.
