Very cool ceramic bottle caged and corked, the cork coming out incredibly easily and with a big pop after the uncaging. Glad the cage was there to hold it in! I poured way too heavy to start with and almost nothing but huge white fluffy head that is silky smooth. As the head barely dissapates, a clear golden yellow beer with hints of orange is revealed with lots and lots of bubbles feeding the three finger head. In fact those bubbles are so active that it pushes the head up well after it should start dissapating, especially in the second pour of the bottle. Also present in that second pour is a bit of sediment that gets swirled around by all the commotion. Gorgeous beer all told. The head actually gets in the way of the aroma a little as I am having trouble getting my nose in the glass, but what is there hints at cereal grains that mingles with clove and peppery notes. Even a little grassy or earthy. As the head finally goes down a bit, more aromas are clear and the aroma is clean with a hint of yeast. A touch of booze works through as well, pleasantly.

A very dry taste and finish, only a hint of sweetness in the front that is reminiscent of white wine. Hints of lemon and orange zest come through lightly in the front side of the palate as well. Here is where it comes right to the brink of tart, but is dried out by the peppery notes and hops. It moves into a very inviting dryness with the help of these light peppery notes and a little bit of clove. The hops then come in with a lemon grassy quality that goes well with the carbonation and peppery notes. The second half of the bottle proves to have more yeasty notes, nothing overly funky but a definite added belgiany farmhouse character. The vinous qualities are very pleasant and work well with this beer. The bone dry taste is superb and complex, letting this beer shine. I definitely recommend for the fan of Belgians as this one is worth it.
