look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

I *must* comment on the FEEL first, because I am surprised that other reviewers haven't noticed. The mouth feel of this beer is that of Champagne! This is something that I do not recall having experienced in American beers, even my favorites. It's as if the bubbles from the carbonation are very tiny and very active. I happen to like this - a LOT; thus, my rating.

The smell is pleasant - a bit fruity, but overall nothing spectacular.

The taste is quite good! It's clean and crisp, not slick or syrupy. I would describe the body as medium. I barely taste or smell the alcohol. But it is definitely there, as I feel myself getting a bit woozy as I write this. (And I'm not a fan of low alcohol beers. If I am going to drink a beer, it may as well do some GOOD, you know? I'm not interested in any beer or ale that comes in at less than 6% ABV. But the higher, the better.)

I will definitely get this again!!

100th beer review of the year. 330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Golden, slightlyhazy with a few floaters, initial two finger head,
decent retention, lots of lacing clung to the side of the glass.

S: To start with it wasn’t overlyfragrant, picked up some fruity esters towards the
end, slightly more hops than is the norm for lots of Belgian beers.

T: Lots of esters and yeast, some fruits. Had a real sharpness to it. Finished
up with a hit of bitterness.

M: Not overly carbonated, slightly thick texture and heavy body.

O: It reminded me of certain beers from the Van Steenbergen brewery. I can’t find fault, but it didn’t do anything to distance itself from the herd.

Clear amber colour, a big head that disminishes but not leaves, great lace. Smell of tropical fruits, honey, spices, caramel. Good carbonation, medium to full body. Taste is similar to the smell, tropical fruits, spices, pine and some esters.
