When poured slowly into a Duvel glass, this beer is beautifully presented. Half of the glass is filled with the pale golden elixir, which is only slightly hazy since I left about 2cm in the bottle to keep the yeast out. This is topped off with a huge, rocky, pure white head that leaves a generous amount of lace, yet stays very well. A steady stream of bubbles rises from the very bottom of the glass, helping the head's wonderful staying power. Spicy aroma of pepper and fruit esters, along with some malt presence in the background. On the palate, delicate yet spicy pepper tickles at the tongue, creating a tingly yet smooth mouthfeel. Slightly fruity sweetness is the major player here, and goes perfectly with the spiciness. Very slight hop character shows itself in a rind-like bitterness around the middle and in the finish. The finish is otherwise sweet, but is dominated by the aforementioned hop bitterness. The high alcohol content is not at all noticeable, making this dangerously drinkable! This is a god among beers, truly a masterpiece and worthy of its high esteem. One of the wonders of the beer world.
