Inviting dark colour with good lacing, big fruity and alcoholic aroma. Smooth and creamy on the palate with a mellow up front sweetness, mild apple like tartness and a mix of medicinal herb, spicy alcohol and slight grain in the dry finish. This is one Belgian that I'll be going back to for sure.

4.4/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 750ml champagne-style bomber with a coating that looks like ceramic. Cute pink elephant with some trippy colours surrounding it lets you know that your ass is going to be dead, soon. No bottled on info. Blue foil seal with cork and crown.

Appearance: Hazy deep ruby red with a tan creamy, patchy lace -- one gentle swirl and it creams up again.

Smell: Medicinal/light solvent, tart apple, faint caramel, raw sugar, alcohol (swirl and give it a good whiff) and earthy / yeast aromas.

Taste: Kinda smooth and very creamy on the palate, light pear texture. Medium-bodied. Medicinal, dominant apple (slightly tart), herbal, yeast ... then the malts settle in on the palate with a smooth chocolate / caramel flavour that turns dry soon after. No predominant hop bitterness. Vague spices. Warming spicy alcohol character hits the head after a few decent sips.

Notes: Welcome to Belgian beers! Lovely combination of malts and complex tartness. A surprise lurks around every taste bud with this beer. Amazing how such a beer can go from sweet to mildly tart to dry.
