This is my first report, so bear with me.
I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. My wife came home from Central Market with the beakerish glass and the belgium beer in tow. I was happy!
So we all know, I am colorblind. I often ask my dog, "Does this shirt go with these pants?". Sadly enough, he rarely answers.
But this beer was quite flavorful. A medium maltiness that rides heavily on the tongue. You can't drink this very fast, but then again you wouldn't want to. The flavor is apple/pearish with with a hint of the victory style malts.
The smell comes in nicely, a tiny bit of fruitiness from the yeast.
The mouthfeel is thick, just slightly less than a watery cough syrup. Perfect for a nice Belgium Pale.
You can't drink this for hours on end but it would go great with a slightly sweet dessert or pastry.
Hope this helps. Enjoy!

With the employment of kettle caramelization, Pauwel Kwak's confidence in this "grand cru" of a beer earns the beer the name of the brewmaster. ...and one sip will show you why!
As the dark amber decants, a rusty haze gives a glimpse into its rustic roots. Once tipped, aromas of soft nuts, caramel, bread crust and fresh baking bread entice the nose while a balance of cinnamon and nutmeg balance upon the initial taste.
Once the beer develops over the middle, its bready and toasty middle gives slight bready texture that's lifted with rose-type wine. Its acidity enlivens the malt and gives its terse caramel sweetness life with red grape, red apple and dried dates. Its nutmeg flavor garners esteem just ahead of the beer's finish.
That's when the high effervescence lifts the taste and refreshes the palate with ease- its steely caramel flavor dissolves easily, carrying with it any malty weight and bready texture- nearly preferring wine like zestiness in charming warmth as the taste closes.
