Served in Kwak glass (what else), poured at around 55 degrees. 750 ml bottle

A- Amber to deep red, depending on the point in the glass! Rich almost khaki foam, plenty of bubbles. Cautious pour, but could use a more voluminous head to start.

S- Belgian yeast, spice, then a fruity, festive smell

T- Some toasty malt, some candy sugar, spices, plenty of balancing hop bitterness. A hint of pilsner malt. Hop bitterness lingers on the finish. Very rich overall, without being heavy

M- Nice carbonation, better than in the 33 cl bottles. Very easy-going. Noticeable stickiness

O- This is a nice middle ground between session and refresher beers, and strong, knock you out beers. It's good at the end of a busy day- without ending your day.

Looks great , a little darker than I would have expected from a pale ale, but beautiful amber with slight haze.
Smells a little boozy and strong fruit, almost no malts, like a Christmas sherry, some spicy notes.
Taste is following the aroma, with a fruity sweet spicy tang.
A good ale with, for me, a bit too much fruity, and not enough malty.
