750 ml. corked bottle. Pours an amber orange colour, with a small head that does not take much time to fade, but leaves a good lace and and a tiny layer on the surface. Smell of caramel, plums, raisins, cloves, apple and sugar. Medium carbonation, medium body, crispy texture. Tasteof caramel, oranges, sugar, plums, raisins, sugar and some spices.

330 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 3/5/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, clove, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy clove spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, clove, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian amber ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Beer that tastes so nice while drinking, that I almost forgot how it has 7,5% alcohol. The taste, and the aftertaste are so good, that it can be drinked when ever and with every kind of food. I strongly recommend to try this beer without hesitation.
5 thumbs up.

P.S. this is my subjective opinion.
