I feel compelled to review this, as the packaging tricked me in to believing this was a good beer.

Appearance was awful - it pours a very muddy brown, with a fizzy head that lasted about half a second. Instantly, this reminded me of early homebrew efforts. Aroma was more of the same - yeasty in an unflattering way, with a bit too much malt character. Drinking this was a chore - it definitely seems like the yeast wasn't allowed to finish. Booze and unfermented malt dominate. Overly bubbly and harshly carbonated.

Yuck. I tried, but I dumped most of this. Pretty label anyhow...

Popping the cork releases fruity aromas – primarily peach with a hint of fresh laundry, a hint of smoke, floral notes and some biscuit.
Or de Belgique pours a hazy peach color under a 2” bone-white moussey foam cap that descends to a very thick, lace producing film.
The attack starts with pear, peach, bubble gum over toffee malt flavors that finishes with a medium hop bitter emphasis on the end.
The alcohol is pretty much masked by everything else in the beer. The beer has a very smooth, creamy, rich and luscious texture giving it a very effervescent, medium body.

Finally picked up a bottle of this from Zipp's. I've been eyeing this for a while.

Cork was impossible to get out--had to breakout the corkscrew.

Pours a nice light yellow color, good head that lingers.

Smell--hmm...oxidize hops? Some citrus. Some alcohol. Some citrus and general fruityness.

Taste--hot. Rubbing alcohol. Oxidized hops. Hard to get past these and taste any hops.

Mouthfeel--thick. near cloying, but not quite.

Overall--very disappointed. I'm hoping that this is not characteristic of the brewery--I might bet my bottle was a little old, but unfortunately that only gets rid of the oxidized hops. The rest of the bottle is now heading to the Mississippi
