Poured from 12 ounce bottle into a Duvel tulip. Appearance is a very dark yellow/orange with a finger of head that dissipates quickly and isn’t exactly pretty. Murky. Aroma is that of other Belgium strong ales, flowery, citrusy, yeasty, complex, and obviously sweet. Palate has a decent carbonation, and is very drinkable. Taste is amazingly complex. Masks the 10.5% very well, but there is still a warming alcohol burn. Spicy and not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Overall it’s a great beer that I’m glad I had the chance to try. I think it might have been too complex for me. It was still a great treat though.
