Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear bright copper hue with fine eggshell white head of 1 cm that fades to a thin edge layer after the pour.
Aroma is sweet and spicy with pear and white grapes mixing with some clove maybe and other general sweetness. Sort of like an herbal tea, echinacea blend anyone?
The first sip reveals an average to light body with fine and spacious carbonation. Very smooth easy to drink beer.
Flavor is sweet and spicy with a bit of toasted malt note and some light fruit, pear again for me.
This is followed by some more herbal notes mostly sweet, like clove or vanilla but not quite those flavors I cant place it but again sweet herbal tea comes to mind. The label says chamomile, maybe that is it.
I get no hops or booze on this one and it goes down easy and is a curious beer. I dont love it but it isnt flawed and I can drink it. I probably wouldnt chase it down again, but if you are into Belgian style brews that are interesting yet not overly robust or crazy this is up your alley.
