I saw this at Johnny Farina's in Ottawa and was intrigued by the pink elephant on the tap handle. The bar tender said it had been ranked one of the best beers in the world by a major beer magazine. But when I questioned him on the magazine he admitted he didn't know - and that it was quoted on the free t-shirt the staff had been given!
It was poured in it's proper glass with 1.5 fingers of white head. The beer is slightly cloudy but a typical golden belgian pale otherwise. Some lace followed the beer down the glass.
Smelled of belgian yeast, some sweetness and hops.
Initially it tasted remarkably like Duvel only slightly sweeter. By my second pint the sweetness was really coming through. It's good though.. tartness, fruity yeast, herbs and some bitterness.
Mouthfeel is a bit better than average but drinkability is solid. These go down very well given the higher alcohol content.

4.25/5 rDev +2.9%

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.
