Pours a lazy yellow color with a hazy chill. A fantastic head retention that lasted throughout the drink as a whole. Really no gaps. The lacing was good but did decrease over time.

The nose has a fruity aroma with a complex Belgium malt and sweetness. There is a slight campaign feel to it with the carbonation. Some apples and peaches mix with a flowery nose mixed with honey. Some phenol smells but rather light for a high ABV.

The taste is great. A complex malt but more of a lighter Belgium pale was noticeable. Stronger esters and a good banana flavor are present. A smoothness to it with some lighter spice flavor, mostly coriander. Lighter fig taste with an apple tart rounds out a great tasting Belgian beer. The hops blend smoothly with the malt and a more noted candy flavor overall. A great tasting Belgium.

Overall the taste is very smooth with medium to light carbonation. The beer is very easy to drink with a hidden high ABV to it. Great taste and such a smoothness that not all Belgians can do.

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.
