330ml bottle. Augustijn Chalice glass. Brownish amber color headed by beige froth & close but quickly diminish crown. Toasted, prune, plum marmalade, brown sugar & herbal aromas. Sweet, crystal & caramel malty upfront. Medium to full body. Moderate to high carbonation. Silky palate. ABV is felt as a sugary & kind heat. Slight wood, spiced, anise & cumin hues. Sweet & quite sparkling finish. Long fruity aftertaste. Correct beer.

From a bottle into a chalice, at about cellar temperature.

It's head is kind of non-existent, with even an aggressive pour making just a tiny amount of beige fizz which settles to a ring quickly. However, it's got a pretty copper-like reddish brown body in which I can view carbonation bubbles and a lot of nice sediment, which becomes a really thick CLOUD of sediment once I pour out the last of the beer.

To me it smells like caramel, cherries, maple, and ripe apples and bananas.

It also tastes of tart green apples and ripe bananas to an extent. The finish is bready with a bit of dry hoppiness.

The carbonation is expectedly high, and the body feels kinda medium.

Not a mind-blowing Belgian ale, but nevertheless a really solid one. I'm definitely glad I got to try it.
