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.
