look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. Pours a smooth, light tan one finger head. The head dissipated rather quickly to a very thin layer.

Aroma is fruit, yeast and spice. Almost akin to a strong cider. First thought in my head was "fruit bomb" as an apricot/apple-y aroma shines through. This ale is very tasty. Fruit, candy sugar, apricot, spices.

Again, Chimay has the carbonation down pat. It's the perfect amount for this type of ale IMO. Medium body with a slightly dry finish. Superb drinkability.
