One of the nicest Belgium's from Belgium to me. Sweet sorta sour taste with a nice white head and finishes with what I can only describe as a old school bubble gum taste

Clear veiled straw, almost golden color. Extra foamy white 4 finger head lasting around 10 minutes and creating a foam island that you could eat with a spoon. Nice thick legs and powerful activity. Swirling the glass easily recreates a 1 to 2 finger head.

Aromas and flavors of citrus, fruits, grains, toasty bread, and herbal spices. Pleasantly balanced flavors and intensity with some fruity orange sharpness and apple sweetness, but with a slightly vinous and metallic feel.

Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Balanced finish and well intensified, quite clean, ending with a dry spicy clove like aftertaste.

Overall : Delicious, fresh, warming and almost not feeling like a strong beer. Great craft.

Has a fruity nose with hints of compost and over ripe fruit. Pours hazy straw to gold under a pure white head that looks like a washing machine gone wild. Strong funky flavors of old plums to old peaches, rich light malts, white bread, a hint of spice and a pleasant bitterness on the finish. Medium full body and medium high carbonation. Biog alcohol but it is not hot or solventy.

Proper. Whatever is happening is alright here with me.

The head is overwhelmingly big but they're not compensating for anything as far as I'm concerned. Wacky
