Pours a gold, clear colour. Head is overly generous in the pour but good integrity, small off-white bubbly foam.
Smells tart, fairly funky. Belgian phenols with citric twang, slight soapy character, some barnyard. Bit stale as well, could use a bit more fresh tartness. Nice, though.
Taste is a lot sweeter than expected. Notes of vanilla and nutmeg upfront, gets caramel toffee midway, before finish is slightly boozey with a touch of honey and cherry medicine. Some orange citrus and Earl Grey notes. Definitely missing that slight Belgian edge promised on the nose.
Smooth, foamy, maybe a touch on the thin side but really very decent. Not enough flavours I really like, although the balance overall is fairly decent.
