A - Slightly hazy golden yellow colored with a huge, long lasting, frothy white head. Tons of lacing left throughout.
S - Sweet bready malts, tons of esters and a slight barnyard character. Not wild yeast-like, but a slight musty character going on. Quite enjoyable.
F/M - Sweet candy-like pilsner malts, slightly bready and balanced with a very nice firm, earthy/grassy hop flavor. Moderate bitterness helps the beer to finish dry with a lingering pils malt flavor. Lots of esters; pears and light bananas. Medium mouthfeel with moderately high carbonation.
O - Very nice. I really love Dupont's beers, and this one is also very enjoyable.

Overall - One of my new favorite belgians. Core addition to your tasting experience.
A: One must observe the many lines of fine champagne bubbles rising in this golden beer to appreciate how well crated and attractive it is. Continuous necklaces of pin point bubbles, finer than any champagne, build a billowing parchment colored head that lasts and laces.
A: The nose is dominated by barnyard Belgian yeast, hay, grass, wet spring, and then early orchard fruit with peppery spice. As expected, and then more. (Orchard, wet grass, you dont quite know what...)
T: follows the smell, but bigger, brighter, and lots of apple orchard fruit. Like you remember it the first time as a kid apple picking in October. Some wood, some spice cabinet, and a long, apple, pear finish with unusual spice cabinet and cedar.
MF: Great finish.
O: As a reviewer wrote the beer offers it all: "sweetness, sourness, dryness, funkiness, fruitiness and spiciness". Fruit: apples, pears and apricots. Sweet dominates early, bitter and dry dominates late.
Must try along with all great Belgians.
