From the bottle to the glass, a clear light amber with a finger-half finger head. Very little lacing. Playfully active bubbles sparkling throughout.

A slight touch of pineapple notes in the scent, some other gentle floral and sweet herbal elements, but nothing distinguishable.

Nothing overpowering or prominent, and that's a little disappointing. The usual malt and wheat tastes are present, but... I don't know... I'm searching for some taste to build on, but it's not there. Inoffensive.

Feels quite lovely on the tongue, the carbonation is pleasing and somewhat soothing.

For something that's named after the angel of death, I was expecting something a little more... well, *more*. It's inoffensive, but it's just not impressing me. I'll pass on it in the future.

A- served in a goblet, pours a clear and bright golden color with a small creamy white head, short retention leaves just a ring of foam after it settles

S- slightly phelonic yeast, big bready and doughy notes, floral aromas with a bit of light fruit

T- fruity notes of apple and pear, sweet Belgian yeast, honey, floral and herbal hop notes, sweet-yet-dry finish with just a bit of clean alcohol at the end

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish, alcohol is barely noticeable. This drinks way too easily for an 8% beer

O- well balanced with nice apple/pear notes, superb drinkability and brilliantly hidden alcohol, very refreshing on tap.
