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.

Served at 9C, in a small glass. Half a bottle - split with a friend.

Beautifully red-gold, when backlit. Floating particles of yeast.

Characteristic ale smell - acid and dust.

Initially sour and fruity, with a strong yeast flavor following. A touch of sweetness. Some roasted nut flavors in the aftertaste, centered towards the top of the mouth, along with a slight bitterness.

Absolutely lovely mouthfeel - smooth, with a good light carbonation on it.
