A benchmark example of the style.
Bottle pours a hazy, dull amber and has a reasonable off-white head with impressive retention. Classic and rich aroma of Belgian yeast, with roasted malt undertones. The yeast is present in all elements of the flavour, which ranges from an initial sweetness including roasted nut and tannin complexity to a more simple bitterness in the finish.
Well balanced and robust, this beer is a pleasure to drink - even for someone who wouldn't always choose this particular style.
