Wow. Tons of floaty things when I poured this apricot hued brew. Hazy, so Im guessing this and the floaters mean its unfiltered. Fluffy, almost sticky white head that slowly fades to a thin cap, then ring. Lots of sticky lace. Lots of fruity, sweet aromas with subtle clove like spiciness in the back ground. Quite bold and sharp up front as the alcohol bites the tongue, but then warms and the rich flavours come out to play. Sweet malt that shows a very quick honey bite, then fades very quickly. That was a neat trick! Some clove-like spiciness makes an appearance as well. Some bitterness from the hops before the alcohol and the honey-like sweetness do their encore. Quite full in body, a bit drying at the finish. I liked this more than Dilirium Tremens as it seemed more balanced and not as harsh

250ml bottle served in a snifter glass.
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
