330mL bottle poured into a Belgian glass.

Appears to be a light golden-straw color. Ample carbonation streaming from the glass with an equally generous amount of fluffy white head.

Aroma is crisp yeast. You can tell this beer will be dry and yeasty. Slight notes of grain. The yeast is obviously present and quite complex!

Taste is absolutely spectacular. This is my go to beer. In my opinion, I wouldn’t change anything about this beer. Immediately when the beer kisses your lips the carbonation grabs you and keeps you the entire sip. The beer is akin to a dry champagne with notes of yeast and light hopiness. Some nice notes of grains or wheat in the mid-palate. Really no malt to speak of. Very little hop bitterness, however, the bittering-hops that are present act to balance and add characteristic to the beer rather than being added in for the heck of it. This beer is incredibly smooth even at such a high ABV! It drinks like a 4% (be careful!). I LOVE Belgian beers, and I think this is the best example of a Belgian bottle conditioned beer. So crisp!

Overall, this is a perfect beer in my opinion. It pairs with any dish. Non-beer drinkers will love this beer as well as more veteran beer drinkers. If you are getting into beer, getting into Belgians, or just want to try an EXCELLENT beer look no further. This is why this beer receives a 100/100!!!

Decadent and fancy looking but not necessarily the top for me. Taste wise, it's a great belgian. Nice light color, enough carbonation but not too much, but taste was nothing to shout about for me. Great though for celebrations.
