From a 2014 Holiday Giftpack.

Aroma is light citrus fruit. Pour is a clear effervescent yellow with a thick white head. Head is long lasting with generous lacing on the glass. Taste is bold crisp , slightly alchoholic; like fermented grapefruit! Pleasant!

Best Belgian-style beer for the Price!

Appearance is a hazy yellow-orange color. Ample carbonation that matches the style perfectly. Beautiful fluffy white head that clings to the glass and stays throughout consumption.

Aroma is hits of the yeast with some alcohol presence up front. A major contribution from the yeast that gives it an almost bready smell (as in the yeasty-bread dough before it is baked). Definitely spicy peppercorn with some citrus notes of mainly lemon and orange.

Taste is excellent. Immediately hit with spiciness and yeastiness. I get some of the orange peel and coriander, however not much of the other labeled ingredients. Some nice flavors of lemon juice and zest with a touch of lime zest in the mid palate as well. A moderate amount of classic pepperiness with some biscuity notes. Totally complex!!! At the end a very mild kiss of hops makes the beer incredibly balanced and drinkable. The beers carbonation allows the beer to be extremely refreshing.

For about 3 dollars a bottle, this beer is cheap in comparison to other Belgian beers (normally 5 and up), however it doesn’t lack in complexity and character. It is owned by the same company that produces beers like Duvel (another favorite) and Achouffe, so that’s another perk of known quality! This would go well with many different food pairings. I think pairing this beer with something equally spicy would work well such as some excellent cured meats like hot coppa or soppressata. Again, for the price, this beer is my go to! The only thing that isn't perfect is that as the beer warms up it gains a slightly more present alcohol hit (amplified by the flavor of raw ginger) that detracts from all of the other great flavors. It isn't terrible, however, I did have to mark it down for that reason. However, I still give it 98/100 points!
