11.2 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a foamy, long lasting, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of Belgium yeast, pear, some banana and some spicy hop notes. Flavor is similar to aroma. Medium, crispy body. Long, dry finish. All around solid brew.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a tulip.

A: Medium amber color. Pours about a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters fairly slowly, leaving little peaks and valleys, and plenty of sticky residue as it does. Additional sparse lacing remains as you drink it down.

S: A woody roasted malt, with hints of molasses, raisin, and licorice.

T: Kind a of a bittersweet malt flavor with a woody tone.

M: Light body, but full flavored. The flavor tone clings to the palette, almost with a syrupy nature.

D: Good sipping beer.

Atmosphere is pretty solid. Nice rich appearance, and great balanced nose. Flavor is not complex, but does have a nice fully bittersweet malt. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Of the major Belgian expert beers, this one is very approachable. Though the Belgian candy sugar does give it a sweet savor, it tastes dry enough to be good with all but the spiciest foods (at which point it vanishes into the background). I get a little nuance of orange peel and coriander, and it pours with a respectable head.
