Pour this one slowly into a pint glass, resulting in little head. Small mold like colonies within the beer, reminescent of Delerium Tremens.
Taste is wonderful. It has a cask like fruity spice aroma with a clean taste. Has a dry finish with a bold alcohol taste. Better than usual fare of La fin du Monde. Its a bit different from Duvel because the head isn't there, and that Duvel is more clear. I give the mouthfeel a 4 because it is thin, making one think this beer is drinkable. Yes it is drinkable despite this beer giving me a good buzz.
Interestingly, one side of the bottle says 9% alcohol, the front side says 10.5%. I rather believe in the later. This is a great beer.
