For an offering from a mass-producer brewery it's a very good effort. It pours well, with a generous head which does not disappear immediately, and leaves delicate lacing. The smell is that typically spicy smell one gets from the stronger Belgian-style blonds (think Duvel). the taste is citrus, with hints of cloves, and there is an efervescence in the mouth that leaves a tingle on the tongue. Overall a very satisfying beer.

The category listing for this beer is wrong. It's a blond, not a dark ale. The name translates to "heavy blond" which is a reflection of the high alcohol content.
