A: Medium shade of brown, very hazy, with a very large eggshell white head. The head is very impressive; it is creamy, fluffy, and leaves good lacing.

S: The scent is very interesting, in that it has very unique spice scents. It smells a bit like fresh sugar-cane. A bit grassy and sweet. There is a pear scent as well. Some light banana scents floating around. Very interesting.

T: A smile just shot across my face with the first sip. Tons of flavor and complexity. There's a bit of that grassy flavor, along with something that tastes a bit like cinnamon...but not cinnamon...maybe some sandalwood in there as well, as weird as that sounds. There's a rich malty flavor, but not caramel-like. Incredibly complex.

M: The mouthfeel is heavier, smooth, and very warming. Lots of carbonation that tingles the mouth like a wash of sea foam.

O: Overall I was impressed by this beer. It had loads of flavors that I don't often get to experience, or haven't experienced at all. It is definitely a sipper, because it has such a presence that commands attention with every drink. I highly recommend it to Belgian beer lovers, or people who are not afraid of uniquely flavored beers. This one is definitely unique.
