Great crisp taste. I have grown fond of the higher alcohol beers over the last few months. This is the first time I have had this one but it has been great

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

L: nearly crystal-clear, yellow-gold liquid with a slight tinge of jade... very open, spongy, frothy white foam

S: fantastic, immediately recognizable Chouffe yeast character... lemon, melon... spicy hops in the end of a long whiff... bit of a honey-ish malt at the back

T: quite spicy up front - yeasty phenols with maybe a bit from the hops... (fruity) bubblegum, clove, and a nip of graham cracker in the middle, carrying through and somewhat fading by the end... finish is mostly honey and a delicate dry, toasty, mildly-cereal malt... the alcohol, overall, is static, rough-sanded dull, but with carries a lactic bite

F: smooth and dry, light-bodied, with a flash of nubile curvaceousness in the middle... the finish just disappears, but doesn't quite snap off - more like wet sand being pulled back into the sea by an outgoing wave(?!?)

O: this is pretty damn drinkable for what it is... has a passing resemblance to Delirium Tremens, but that beer comes off a bit harsher and drier from the bottle... the Chouffe yeast is f'n royalty among the Belgians - I could drink this shtuff all day
