Cool lookin' 11.2 oz bottle with best before date, and on the back in quotes
"SAVOR THE MYSTERY OF AGES"
Poured this into snifter w/ 1.5" bone white creamy head that falls quickly to ring, leaving laces on the side. Crystal clear gold in colour.
On the nose: thick sweet medicinal phenols, candy sugar, pineapple, vanilla, and alcohol spices. Also getting a faint harsh hop aroma as well.
Not a bad soft spritz. Good creamy medium mouthfeel.
On the palate is pretty much like the aroma.
Sticky sweet upfront(pineapple/pear).Touch of alcohol comes in the middle, and tapers off into a kinda harsh, buttery/spice hop finish..not really subtle & delicate like the bottle says.
After you get over the processed taste, and the 6.6% kicks in.. their alot better.
This isn't bad at all for $29.99 a case(stupid PA by the case law). Great when the funds are low, and you need a Belgian Beer fix! I will enjoy pairing this with grilled seafood, and good cheeses in the backyard on a nice sunny day.
For a little bit more $, I would rather buy Affligem Blonde, but this is worth a try.
