This beer pours a really dark amber color with a medium dingy head that fades quickly. The aroma is very sweet and promising of a good taste. Upon first taste, this reminds me of a very sweet wheat beer. It has hints of fruit in the taste and the carbonation is very apparent when drinking, but overall it reminds me of a really smooth wheat beer. It is not excessively smooth to drink and it is pretty flavorfull. I could not see myself drinking more than one of these at a sitting because of the fullness of the flavor and the fact that I am not too fond of it. Nothing special about it in my opinion.

A: Poured bottle into a tulip glass. The best part of this beer is the pour. Beautiful coloring with a big, think creamy head. The head does quickly dissipate, but very nice to look at while it lasts. There the glass sits, dark brown, stoic, confident, patient.
S: Picked up the ripe fruits. Bananas, dates and figs come to the forefront. Various spices finish off the aroma.
T: 9% alcohol, but you would never know it. Very easy drinking, molasses and a sweetness in the front. The carbonation is present when you taste, which is unexpected. Dark fruits, bananas and spices present throughout.
M: Smooth, evenly coating the taste buds. The beer is effortless. It's doing a simple job and doing it well. No tricks or gimmicks, just consistent performance. It's the Rod Carew of beers.
O: I've had the La Fin Du Monde and now this from Unibroue and starting to form a very favorable opinion of their brewery. I love their straightforward approach and would recommend this beer should you come across it.
