A: Well, golden. Extremely lively head, even a careful pour produces two fingers of white goodness. Settles down to a finger of thick head. No yeast escaped to the glass, so it is very clear, with a constant stream of bubbles going up from the etching on my De Glazen Toren tulip.

S: Yeast and spices all around. Very appetizing.

T: A sweet hit starts it off, then the hops make a presence. Finishes tart, dry, with a hint of spice.

M: Light and refreshing, carbonation is a bit low.

O: Very good Belgian treat, it usually costs less than other options in that style but is just as good. I've had it on tap in a random Marseilles hotel, but the bottle tasted better.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a big and very bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of molasses and lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Strong notes of honey. Quite spicy and fruity too. Notes of caramel malts, coriander, candy sugar, grapes and bready Belgian yeasts. Light notes of flowery hops and bubblegum

T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of honey, caramel malts, sweet pale malts, coriander and sweet bread. Fruity. Notes of grapes. Notes of flowery hops and bubblegum. Light bitterness. Hops have grassy and a bit citrus profile

M: Medium body. Molasses. Medium bitterness. Bittersweet aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Strong Belgian character
