500ml bottle poured into an Orval goblet.
Hazy orange amber in color with one finger white frothy head with moderate retention, the texture seems to be likely clear. The head dissipates to a flat bubble film with some lacing patches. There is not much of visible carbonation.
Overtone mild fruity mingles with malty sweet, a bit spice from the adding of coriander and phenol also with notes of dry husk and nuttiness.
Mild esters and citrusy from yeast do their job well in yielding fruitiness and sweetness drying up the palate along with malt lay as backing. Phenolic spice draws down generating more complexity in tasting. Bitter sweet at the end derives from hop and yeast snap.
The body is medium, low carbonation but fine crisp and carry out well, very dry in the finish.
Very well brew and very easy to go with yet high drinkability as there is no harshness and alcohol is well hidden. Everything just goes down smooth.

3.74/5 rDev -5.1%

Appearance- Pours dark orange with one finger white head which stays on top all the way down , well carbonated and leaves lacing all the way down the glass.
Smell- I get grain, rum/sherry Xmas pudding on the nose. Pleasant.
Taste- Alcohol at first then dark fruit, sweetness and finally the hops at the end. A big heavy beer with lots of flavour.
Mouthfeel- Full mouthfeel but not creamy or fizzy.
Overall- A big potent filling brew with lots of flavour would recommend to any beer lover who hasn't tried before.
