look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Fruity rummish scent with hints of plums, figs, raisins maybe. Nice and inviting.
Slight creaminess on the palette, to the lighter/medium side of carbonation. Warming sensation at the end due to alcohol content.
Light yellowish amber in tulip glass, stark white head which dissipated fairly quickly and is mildly lacing the glass.
Plum notes possibly, getting some light malt hints there but mainly fruity overtones and warming remnants of alcohol afterward.
I'd say a bit too drinkable for abv at 9%, goes down excellent even though get the warming hints from alcohol in the aftertaste.
There are some really great examples of this and this is really good although I don't know if it measures up to say a Duvel

4.48/5 rDev +17%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Pours dark gold in color. Streams of carbonation rush to the top of the glass. Inch of frothy white head that dissipates quickly but thin layer of head is retained for the length of the drink. Clear, no sediment. Looks delectable!
Smell: Sweet malts, caramelly. Hard to distinguish hop aroma. Distinctly belgian yeast; slightly funky, sweet and strong.
Taste: Sweet, slightly fruity (green apples?). Funky/musty taste characteristic of belgian yeast shines through but balanced well by the sweetness. Dangerously smooth for it’s strength.
Mouthfeel: Complex flavors lend to a full body, but the malts maintain lightness. Smooth start to finish. Medium carbonation. Alcohol taste lingers on the top of the mouth.
Overall: I’ve enjoyed this beer more times than I can count, on tap or bottled. It’s always a favorite, never disappointed. Accurate as a Belgian golden, but never boring for the palate!
