Pours a clear, pale straw with about a finger of eggshell head, which quickly disspates to some cirrus swirls and a collar of lacey foam.
The nose is dark and complex, with a blend of spices, coriander and dark fruit. There's a soft malt amidst a Chimay-like metallic tang and clove, fig, and musk.
The taste is surprisingly light and crisp, but otherwise as the nose suggests. There's a lingering heat in the taste and aftertaste. The heat is very stong, and almost fusel-like, but it's not overpowering or unpleasant. Candi sugar, toffee, clove, pennies, pears, plum, clove honey, and apricot are all present.
The flavor is sweet, tangy, and bitter, but spice dominates. It's very drinkable, especially considering the high ABV.

This was deceptively strong.
It pours a clear golden color. There’s a light aroma with a bit of an estery aroma to it. I found it sweetly flavored with an orange blossom characteristic shining through. I had enjoyed it thoroughly, felt it afterwards!

On tap at the Blind Lady Alehouse on the 4th of July in San Diego.
Appearance: Excellent clarity in the amber body. Small but semi-durable white head. Head leaves some sticky streaks and spots on the glass.
Aroma: Sweet biscuits, yeast and faint tropical notes.
Flavor: Fruity, slightly tart, mildly bitter. Banana and clove evident, as is the higher ABV. Seemed to have a narrow tempeature range for optimal flavor and balance. Moderate complexity. Relatively good finish and aftertaste.
Feel: Light-medium body with medium+ carbonation. ABV mostly evident.
O: true Belgian style and quality.
Serving type: on-tap
