It was poured from a 330 ml capped stubby bottle into a tulip.
Pouring from a chilled 11.2oz bottle into a tulip.
A: It poured a pale gold body that was only slightly hazy and supported a one finger thin bubbled white head that dissipated before my second sip. The lacing was temporary and thin.
S: It had a sweet citrusy aroma that was accented by white spices and lots of lemons and white grapes.
T: It had a sweet lemony base that was complemented by tangy and young white grapes, coriander and white pepper.
M: It had a very light and highly carbonated body with a strong alcohol presence and a spicy clean back side.
D: It was light and packed a punch. Very nice representation of the style but a tad over carbonated and it needed a touch more sweetness to balance the citrus and spices. Nice beer that could support a long summer session.

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: Great drinkablility despite of the high ABV. Pleasant and well done Belgian Strong Ale. Classic
