This thing hits that perfect translucent golden hue the best Belgians flaunt like peacock feathers: it really pops. There's a billowing white had for a while, giving way to pervasive lacing and a solid thin cap. Pretty.
Smells of the usual supects: bananas, apples, warm spice, wheaty deliciousness.. but with a precise design that stacks them up in surprising/fresh manner. It's more acute than expected.
Tastes of everything the nose implied with a dose of sweetness, maybe honey, lending balance to everything sharp.
Mouthfeel is everything the style indicates taken to a laser focus. Carbonation strikes a fine balance between hearty and burning, but it's worthy.
I always thought Nocturnum was better, but maybe I'm changing sides.

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
