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.

Deep dark brown and red cloudy color.
Smells like champagne. Fruity, perfume like smell.
Tastes awful. Tastes like champagne and perfume, just like it smells.
I had high hopes. I love dubbels and I really like affligem blonde, but I couldnt give this beer away and I tried.
So to conclude, terrible stay away.
