I purchased this beer from Beer Planet in Brussels in a 12 pack of assorted brews. I was excited to try this one after seeing that it had a pretty good rating. I kept it in the back room until I found the correct glass for it.

Before pouring the beer, I slowly turned the bottle upside down to mix in the contents that settled at the bottom. This beer poured nicely into a Abbaye de Leffe Trappist style glass with very little head. The color was a slightly milky, golden color. Towards the bottom of the glass were very small, dark particles from the bottom of the bottle and noticeable carbonation bubbles all around the glass.

I'm not an expert at detecting different smells in the beer but I could definitely smell the alcohol at 8.5%. The smell was pleasant and inviting.

The first sip of beer was pretty strong but delicious. This brew has very good mouthfeel and doesn't leave a bad aftertaste like some of the similar beers I have tried. It has a very nice carbonation feel to it and the taste of alcohol isn't very pronounced while drinking despite the ABV.

Other things I noticed while drinking were the lack of lacing on the glass and the relative ease of drinking. This beer was very good and is definitely one that I could drink quite often.
