A surprisingly excellent little brew, which I'd never heard of but found at a local store.
Thin, sponge-like head. Muddy orange-brown that ressembles a long island iced tea. Nose is very lightly laced with a peppery feel, not terribly complex but pleasant. Perhaps some pumpkin pie for good measure.
Flavor is much more interesting, oddly enough. Bitter mango skins, a slight roasty flavor, and grilled fruit move along in a sweeping and disturbingly apocolyptic finish -- that is, in the sense that it really cleans itself up nicely.
The 12% abv is nearly completely hidden in this beer, especially compared to other such large beers. Absolutely a delight to drink. I think this is kind of an "easy" but pleasant Belgian.

2.8/5 rDev -28.9%
The foam is thin, but persistent. The smell is quite variegated, from the fruity (even inclined to the too matured fruit) to the cheese?
The colour is mud, no other way to describe it.
It has a creamy flavour, fruity. The taste is even too fruity, maybe raisin. The hop is present in the carpet of flavour. The beer is unbalanced to the sweet. The bitter is noticeable just in the aftertaste. I've tryed this beer on tap at the 24 hour of Antwerpen last year, and I remember it very different (and much better...). Maybe it is the bottle.
