A near perfect brew, totally in league with Duvel and other great Belgians. Poured out to a rich golden color with a pillow of white cloud like foam that was well lived. Nice lacing. High level of carbonation. Aromas of rich, sweet malts, yeast, grass and grain. Very fresh and lively smelling. Taste was quite good; flavors of malts, grain, dough, and yeast meet the palate in good balance, along with pineapple flavors and sweet citrus. Smooth aftertaste. Good mouthfeel, light and medium bodied, yet slightly chewy toward the finish. Very good level of drinkability. This will be in my fridge again soon. Highly Recommended Belgian.

330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a lot of tiny particles floating inside. Forms a big thin bubbled and creamy light yellow head which is aloso soapy and molasses. Huge retention (never disappears completely) leaving tons of soapy lingering lacings in the glass
S: Strong sweet caramel malts in the nose. Candi sugar, dark dry fruits and caramel. Strong lemony and grassy hops profile. Very bready and earthy Belgian style yeasts. Alcohol notes in the end
T: Sweet malty upfront. Strong notes of caramel malts, candi sugar and toffee. Notes of dry raisins and plums. A bit of bubblegum sensation. Grassy and lemony hops bitterness. Consistent bitterness. Good bitterness balance. Belgian style bready yeasts
M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. High density beer. Bready, fruity and bitter aftertaste
O: Good drinkablility despite of the ABV. Pleasant and well done Belgian Strong Ale. Classic
