HUGE, voluminous head with a near volcanic pour. Very cloudy and bubbly with a very bright straw gold color and gobs and gobs of lacing.

Smells fruity, lots of apples and citrus with a distinct earthy and musty scent.

Tastes very much the same with more a focus on the earthiness in the flavor. Even some aged hops. Deliciousness.

mouthfeeel is very dry with some moderate alcohol heat and a nice, bubbly, foamy effervescence. Medium bodied, surprisingly.

Very drinkable for a 10% beer but a bit dry and potent.

Overall, very delicious and wonderful, not the absolute best BSPA but quite nice anyway.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This is my first beer from this brewery.

The beer pours a light yellow color with a gigantic white head that takes several minutes to settle down. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and grain, with some lemon notes mixed in.

The flavor is wheat, bubblegum, pepper, Belgian yeast and some oranges. A fairly complex set of flavors, but they all mix very well together. Easy to drink. The alcohol is very well hidden and barley detectable. I had no idea the beer was 10 percent.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice overall. Glad I got to try it.

2 bottles purchased from Grocery store in Belgium.
Poured from a 33cl bottle into a Leffe Tulip Glass.

A - Cloudy amber with thin head. No head retention. Little cabonation

S – Very sweet; malty and yeasty.

T – First tastes like I just licked a tire. Sweetness and malty that reveals complex honey, malt and pencil erasers.

M – Heavy on the tongue. Sweet mellows to a balance of sour and bitter aftertaste; almost no carbonation.

D- I couldn’t drink this in one sitting. I had to drink this with another beer in-between. 10% alcohol content, this is not something I would have regularly.
