This pours a nice golden straw color with a bright white fluffy billowing two finger head that settles down to a rocky covering with rings and patches of lace. After a quick swirl, the head seems to boil up from below and replenish its self.
The aroma is spicy and a little medicinal, with a hint of chewed up Juicy Fruit chewing gum
The flavor is sweet and a little tart, acetaldehyde, with clovelike spices and an estery background and a little phenolic. All these different qualities blend together and work well for and overall impression of this ale.
The mouthful is a little thin, but the carbonation is damn near perfect.
Very drinkable and I wish I had more to enjoy. The alcohol is completely absent, and at 8,5% can sneak up oh damn!

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
