I personally didn't like this beer that much.
Also, the carbonation of this beer is unreal. Pour very, very slowly!

I picked up mainly for the glass that the packaging came with but this is a very solid beer.

Appearance: Light straw yellow with some clean hazy notes. Very effervescent and lots of pillowy white head and some floating yeast within the glass.

Aroma: Esters and some tart notes kind of a blend of sour and tripel but different in that regard. Interesting beer.

Taste: Tart citrus notes some Belgian style esters and phenols in the notes finish is very clean and enjoyable overall.

Overall: Not a bad beer at all and one I would see out again. Cool that you get a glass for such a good deal and easily found in most stores that sell decent beer.

Great taste, but not the best. Great if there is no other option.

Poured a 330 into a tulip, not a Duvel chalice. I'm OK with that. This was a bright gold with a giant white head that just lasted and lasted. Upon settling, there were nice lacings floating about. The aroma gave spice and a hint of the tart fruit that would come in the sip. The flavor was a neat and spicy up front (allowing the nose to influence). Across the palate there was a nuanced maltiness, so slight it wasn't biscuit but more sourdough bread - but this was a background note. There was an underlying tone of "European" less "Belgian." It finished with a lovely tartness that at first seemed like a mild citrus but upon reflection was more like a apple or pear. The lager people would say "crisp." Some reviews mentioned some alcohol in the finish, but I did not sense that s being of note (even though it is an 8.5). Pretty big bubbles in the carbonation, which gave a nice complement to the crispness. Awfully refreshing for an 8.5 brew.
