A: Poured from a unique 12 oz into a tulip. This is the lightest beer Ive had in a while. On the murky side and yellow, lemonade colored, with some golden hues. Nice light, white, fluffy head and good carbonation.
S: A very sweet maltyness. No real hops. You can feel them in the nose but they really just expand on the light, fruity malted quality. Well played! Lemon peel and limes with a dash of mint followed by a delicate balance of grassy and buttery notes with a hint of black pepper. Very complex and understated. I havent even tasted this beast yet, I could really just keep on smelling it (but I wont!).
T: Very sweet, but not sugary sweet, more of a caramel-honey. Light and buttery. The malt character comes through mostly in the aftertaste. Theres a hint of lemon citrus but not the obnoxiously heavy malt-liquor twang that is all too common in high AbV citrusy ales. Speaking of ABV, wheres the alcohol?
M: Light and full. Crisp, clean, and perfectly carbonated.
D: This is one of the most drinkable Belgian ales Ive ever had. I wish I had bought the big bottle. I don't like giving so many 5's but I just can't think of anything I'de really improve. I guess you just can't beat 140 years of craftsmanship!
Side note: The bottle has a "best before" date on it which reads 03/2009. Might be fun to leave this one in the cellar for a year and check back on it.

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
