330 ml. bottle.. Pours a clear yellow colour, with a big head. It takes its time to fade and leaves some lace. Smell of apples, caramel and hay. Medium body, easy to drink. Taste of fruits, apples, apricots, candy and some spice. Sure you can have it any time, but it doesn't really offer anything to me. Just a correcto beer.

330 ml bottle served at about 6 degrees Celsius into a kronenbourg half pint glass while on vacation in Paris.

Appearance - rich clear bright golden color, with about a finger and half of pearl white head. Great retention and nice levels of spidery lacing down the glass. The beer is clear with lots of active bubbles.

Smell - some Belgian yeastiness as expected and also a light amount of candied baked goods. Some light floral touches and a trace of pepper too.

Taste - fairly straightforward a sweet but bready flavor combined with the Belgian yeasts and maybe some candied baked goods. Straightforward but quite tasty.

Mouthfeel - smooth and creamy yet fairly light, aided by moderately high carbonation, with a slightly drier than average finish.

Overall - really tasty and was considering a second one despite the outrageous price tag, a given with the Arc de Triumph, sitting prominently in the background, but definitely a good one and something I would buy if I ever saw it at home.

On tap in Paris. Served in chalice. Clear golden/ orange appearance. Head was creamy color. Nose was fragrant with mild spice, floral. Taste bread, malt, spice. Light hop finish. Mouthfeel smooth, lingering flavor. Was surprised by refreshing overall experience with this beer.
