From the 2011 corked, caged bottle. Sampled on June 16, 2014 I waited to post this for review number 1,800 even though I had it a week ago.
Lovely pale yellow pour that overflows to a foamy cream colored head. I need a towel to clean up the overflow mess. Great clarity.
Wonderful aroma that highlights toasted pale malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, ginger, and clove. Textbook Belgian Abbey brew.
The body is medium to full but it tickles my senses like champagne.
Similar to the aroma I pick up more spicy characters in the taste. The ginger really forces itself forward beyond the biscuit malts and other spices. Lingering light fruit character at the end. If someone was to ask me 6 months from now what I thought of this beer my answer would be one word "Ginger." Good or bad. That's what I take away from it.

3.88/5 rDev -5.8%
A - golden body with active sparking carbonation. Big white head sinks down and retains well.
S - dusty yeast, grassy, minerals, muted fruit, pears mostly, old spices,
T - fruity yeast, pears, apples, muscat grapes, hints of citrus, sturdy mineral notes. There's some cereal sweetness in the but finishes dry and crisp.
M - moderate carbonation, drinks like sparkling wine.
Interesting. It's like beer champagne. This is my first beer of the style, so I don't have anything to grade it against. While I appreciate this beer, it's not something I would seek out. It would be fun to show up to a tasting with this.
