I had this at Christmas, and boy was it a Christmas treat. I really like the champagne-like quality of this dark, fruity brew. The taste of alcohol is definitely there (9% ABV) but does not overpower the drink. Taste is almost reminiscent of wine, with that bubbly texture on the tongue that tickles the senses. Overall, this is a very, very good Belgian Dark Ale.
