The ceramic look-alike bottle has pink elephants, dragons, strutting crocodiles, and birds on the label. Interesting to say the least...
Appearance: Pours a dull, pale gold topped with a bright white head that holds at a thin cap.
Smell: Sweet and complex with a blast of tropical fruits, with pineapple being the strongest. I detect a bit of white grape as well. There's a rich honey aroma too, along with a bit of spiciness. Hint of breadiness from the yeast. Holding it all up is a good base of alcohol.
Taste: Sweet and spicy with a delayed hop bite. The fruit flavors are all over the place, with pineapple again being the most obvious. I can pretty much cut and paste everything from the smell to here: spices (coriander and clove?) honey, bready yeast, phenolics, and alcohol. Finishes with a burst of warming alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated. Almost watery in body with a crisp, dry mouthfeel. It's gets even drier towards the end from the alcohol.
Drinkability: This brew goes down quite easily for being 8.5%abv. I could drink a few of these before they snuck up on me and had me seeing pink elephants...

On tap, poured into a snifter.
Appearance - gold, bubbly champagne. Thin, white head that leaves minimal lacing.
Smell - a bit underwhelming; some fruit sweetness and mild spices.
Taste - far exceeds the nose, very flavorful and refreshing!
Feel - light considering the ABV, but that isn't a negative. Finishes a bit dry.
Overall - a very good beer, but for the price, give me Duvel.
Serving type: on-tap
