Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a deep copper amber color with a thin white head. Long lasting with good lacing. Smell is very fruity, cherry and plum notes. Slightly alcoholic smelling. Definitely a lot of sweetness to the aroma, very light hop aromas. Taste is very 'Belgian.' Alcoholic and yeasty. There's a fruity sweetness right up front with some caramel malt character. Slight earthy bitterness in the finish. Low to medium carbonation with a full body, and slightly oily mouthfeel. This is a good example of a strong Belgian ale, a little too fruity and sweet for my personal tastes but still good.
