4/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle to a pint glass

Appearance: Golden yellow, w/ a light creamy head.

Smell: Complex with aromas of spice, sweetness, esters and even a bit of alcohol. No hoppy bitterness. Just light sweetness.

Taste: Also quite complex. Sharp initially, w/ a subtle sweetness. Can definitely taste the esters in this one. A little floral and spicy. There is some hoppiness, but not overly bitter. Some yeasty tones. The beer is overall rich, strong and somewhat thirst quenching.

Mouthfeel: Suprisingly light and crisp. Pretty easy to swallow for a higher alcohol beer.

Drinkability: This is a pretty solid beer. It is a little sweet however. My wife loves this one. I enjoy it, but cannot see myself ordering it with other belgian beers available. It is in my opinion a good call.
