look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

330ml stubby into wine glass (due to the abscence of a snifter)

A: cloudy golden straw color with a fantastic head of chunky white foam. Looks great and the head won't die.

S: the other reviews don't lie juicy fruit on the nose. Lots of apple almost like cider. Good yeasty smell like a bread starter. A bit of alcohol on the nose but it makes it smell like white wine. The apple smell is so strong I can smell it a foot from the glass.

T: sweet, more cidery apple flavor with great yeast flavor. Same as the nose, but it has more to it than that. It finishes a little bitter but not overpowering. Really good. It finishes good and dry like brut.

M: smooth and devilshly good. Lighter body than expected almost like a lager but the carbonation gives it a very champagne like mouthfeel but thicker. Like a lager. Wonderful.

O: no wonder it is called one of the worlds best beers. This is great. Not much else I can say really but ohh hell yeah.

Poured into a tulip glass

A: Golden in color but a bit hazy. Tons of carbonation. Nice beautiful foamy head.

S: I'm picking up a lot of smells here: clove, apple notes. The smell is very refreshing.

T: The taste is similar to how the beer smells. There's hints of clove and banana, some spices, and a bit of orange. It also has this apple cider-type flavor amongst all the flavors. The bitterness is very mild.

M: Light bodied, and the carbonation draws out the flavors. The carbonation really makes this beer stand out.

O: This is a perfect beer. It's very tasty and refreshing. It's a really good Belgian Golden.
