Cheaper than the more popular belgian beers. Reminds me a lot of st bernardus. Definitely on my favorites list. Totally recommend it.

Pours almost clear orange amber with 1 1/2 fingers of white, frothy head with excellent retention & decent sheet-like lacing. Aroma sweet Belgian yeast, fruity esters especially banana & hints of orange & apple, some cloves & other spices, honey, faintly hoppy. Taste is sweet yeast, cherry, some banana & apple, hints of citrus, biscuity malt, honey, alcohol & hop bitterness in the finish & aftertaste. Rich & complex in all categories.

Reminds me of a trippel with the bubblegum taste. It's hot with the ABV but tasty

Too much alcohol flavour. Worse than GD or San Agus.
