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.
