This beer is so big and so good and so fizzy, effervescent, balanced and malty and clear and spot on...

I'm going to sound like an arse when I tell this story... This was the first Belgian beer I ever had. It was 1996, I was broke, working in production and living in the 'hood of Venice Beach, CA. My buddies and I used to frequent a fancy schmancy restaurant right off of Abbot Kinney called Hal's. Clearly my buddies and I could not afford to eat or drink at Hal's, but the rich cougars could and they bought us young guys beers if we would talk to them. We were young, of course we wanted free Belgian 8.5% beer from cougars.

Yes, I'm an ass.
