poured from a bomber into an indian wells brewing co pint glass, nice finger of light tan colored head dissipates quickly but the carbonation is extremely vigorous and replaces the popped bubbles quickly. The body is a murky bown color with a reddish tint, definitely an unfilitered brew.
The scent is very malty with a brown sugar impartation initially followed by a smooth fruit input that ends crisply leaving the nostrils refreshed and eager for more. I get raisins, cherries, a small amount of citrus, figs, and dates in there. A small amount of alcohol smell comes through but not too much.
The taste follows directly from the smell, up front it's pretty sweet with a caramel and brown sugary flavor hitting early, this is followed by a more bulky fruitiness, same fruits as before by I think I get fig and raisin more specifically now. No hop bitterness to speak of but there is a small amount of sourness from the yeast right at the end of the taste, it is disguised quite well though.
The mouthfeel is what I would expect from the amount of carbonation in this brew, it's got a lighter more bubbly champagne-like feel which balances well with all the thicker malt to create an extremely drinkable brew. I like it a lot, I think it would go amazingly with a pie or tart during dessert, something with fruit in it.

An absolute favorite ale from Huyghe brewery. Pours a dense dark brown with a big foamed tan head that dies down to a nice layer with excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruits---plum and raisins, light Belgian yeast and Belgian candy malt. Taste is excellent. Plum and raisins sizzle into the flavor profile with this highly carbonated Belgian delicacy, cola and cherry tastes to the side. Aftertaste of cherries and cola. If one ever has a chance I would suggest trying it on tap----an absolutely fantastic Belgian ale.
