Cellar temperature in a tulip.

Topped with a one-finger white head that quickly fizzles away it's a perfectly golden color of wonderful clarity, in which can watch sediments floating around lazily in stark contrast to the streams of carbonation rushing to the surface. Much larger bodies of sediment await at the bottom of the bottle.

It has an awesome aroma of bread, apples, pears, lemon, ginger, and cloves. Maybe a little nutmeg and cardamom, even. Gloriously bready, fruity, and spicy.

Flavors of tart green apples, pears, and lemon reappear on the front. The fruit subsides beautifully into a subtly spiced, bready finish that is balanced perfectly with hoppiness to counter the sweetness. There's also something slightly and delightfully musty about the finish. It sounds weird, but tastes so good.

The feel is effervescent without being too prickly. Dangerously smooth for its strength.

I now equate Salvation with salivation. Thank you, Avery.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is apricots, banana, grains and butterscotch. Pleasant.
The taste starts sweet and gets sweeter. It has a long sweet finish.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
It's too sweet without depth.

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a clear light clear copper colour with a white head that laces.

S - Sticky malts and sugar

T - Up front some nice malts followed by some sticky spice the finish. The finish is sticky and sugary

M - Medium body and medium carbonation

O - No where near Belgian enough. I have had had homebrew better than this. Avoid
