Pours bright pale with a huge, pillowy head with large bubbles that dissapate slowly. As the beer recedes down the glass it leaves a glob of whipped-cream like froth suspended in the middle, very nice.
Aroma displays a grainy malt sweetness with underlying fruity esters. Flavor starts with a spicy fruitiness that quickly gives way to a quenching, sharp dryness. The high carbonation accentuates the dryness and gives an explosive quality to the mouthfeel. There is also some hop bitterness in the finish, but it is overridden by the spice and tang. The alcohol is hardly noticible behind all going on here, you'd never know it weighs in at 8.5%.
Overall, an excellent Belgian Ale, worthy of its status as a classic. Recommended.
