Bottle 33 served in its own glass.

Clear gold colour, almost like a lager. High carbonation, excellent lasting foam.

Smells like lime with some spice.

Tastes like citrus fruits, quite bitter as it should. Spices are still there. In the beginning it seems lighter, then you feel the alcohol arriving.

This is definitively one of my favourite Belgian beers. Alcohol, smothness, biterness, all seems to match very well.

23rd Sep 2013: bottle poured into the huge Omer glass by Daisy in 't Brugs Beertje.

Looked great, golden and bright with a vast pure white head.

No great aroma, some yeast and light malts with citrus hop hints as it warmed a little.

Taste wise it comes across slightly sweet with a mild hop bite, refreshing and crisp: the alcohol is hidden well and is far too easy to drink.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Got this as a sample from my distributor after he had heard I'd never had this stuff before. Right on. It pours a lightly-cloudy gold topped by a finger or more of white foam. The nose comprises French bread, mild yeast, light black pepper, and a soft breeze of smoothie (made up of banana, orange, and lemon). The taste brings in more of the same, with the yeast and its spices taking center stage, the pepper and its partner clove dialing things up a notch for the performance. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid BSPA, something I could see enjoying while watching a soccer game (if I ever got into soccer, that is).

Pours a hazy yellow to orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, candy sugar and quite floral. In the taste, dry candy sugar and dryer floral notes. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry floral and candy sugar notes in the aftertaste. Just above average, but decent.
