look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

300ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow colour 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, sweet malts and spices. Quite fruity too. Notes of caramel malts, coriander, candi sugar, grapes and bready Belgian yeasts. Flowery hops. Some notes of bubblegum in the end

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

M: Medium body. A bit molasses. Good carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Strong Belgian character
