Poured into a chalice. Pours hazy golden with a big white head. Plenty of tiny bubbles can be seen rising from the side of the glass. The head retains very well for such a big beer. The aroma is bright. There are roasted malts, candi sugar, apples, pears, and citrus. There is that typical Belgian yeast aroma. The flavor is bready from the malts and the yeast and also mildly sweet. I also pick up those fruit flavors I found in the aroma, but not as strongly. The hops bring a subdued floral flavor to this beer as well as some balance. There is some tartness on the back end. The alcohol is masked in all those flavors. It's very well balanced. The body is medium with moderately high carbonation. The finish is crisp and slightly dry. This is a solid sipper. This is an excellent beer.
