A-Pours a foggy amber color. My pour was relatively devoid of any head. It's body is predictably thick.

S-Aroma is fairly mute,I stupidly chilled this far too much. The aroma grows as the minutes pass. It's purely sweet with zero hop presence. Estery and noticeably fruity with stiff alcohol.

T-The flavor is less coercive with its alcohol. It's a thick load of sweetness. Fruity yeastiness. Isn't impressive as far as complexity goes. It's just a big beer.

M-Booze is pleasant, reminds me of a liqueur. Nearly cloying, though. Hot. Light bubbles. Slow sipper.

O/D-Not something I would ever buy. Happy I didn't pay for this and I sampled from a friend. Not what I'm looking for in a beer but I can see why someone who loves their Belgian sweet-brews would love its hot, sticky goodness.

this beer is worth a try if youre into Belgium brews that are slightly boozy and have the yeast characteristics.

A-orange and amber in color..nice lacing that left a decent head that rapidly vanished.

S-bread/biscuits ,malt,belgium , slight alcohol smell is present.

T-coriander , boozy, hot, complexed and pretty balanced. some malt and a peppery /spice flavor...pretty awesome.

M-light to medium mouth on this ,pretty well carbonated. nice!

O- overall I really enjoyed this beer as a sipper on a cold night....its actually become a staple in my rotation. I like the hint of booze in it ,its not too overpowering.
def a must try ...

Purchased at total wine in naples,florida for 15.99$ for a 4 pk

A - Poured a rich amber color out of the bottle. Poured fast enough that I had a large lacy head that disappeared really quickly

S - Bready, malty nose with hints of alcohol.

T - Super complex. Strong boozy taste, sweet and rich with peppery, coriander finish. AMAZING!

M - medium mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation.

O - The best Belgian beer I have had.
