Pours a soft, sedimentary/effervescent-laden golden yellow body... beautiful white head leaves picturesque lacing seen only in internet photos--an especially good bottle? Soft hoppy scents that invite without agitation--a slightly off-color scent warms its way in late... light, almost fizzy presentation--effervescent as expected, nutty at the teeth...citrus flavoring takes its lead with a fresh bit of bread at points(!)... crisp and short with little aftertaste.... the understanding that InBev sells this makes an unbiased review difficult--an above-average Belgian that minds its manners through it relatively low alcohol content and its swift presence in the mouth--I recall my first chalice at Avignon outside the gardes, and the experience was magical to me--this noncorked bottle still measures well with the more distinguished abbeys...

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
