A: poured into a Duvel tulip to a beautiful golden yellow topped by a three finger dense and rocky head with excellent staying power and nice lacing
S: smells of fruity esters, spicy yeast and dry malt
T: taste is sweet and fruity with some spicy yeast and a mice dry cracker maltyness. swallow is more fruitiness with some phenols, and warming alcohol
M: this beer sits at the lighted end of medium on the palate with soft but assertive carbonation from the bottle fermentation and a slightly drying finish
O: Either way as a 'strong saison' or a belgian strong pale this beer is fantastic. Alcohol is well hidden and this beer drinks very easily.
