One of my favorites and oh so hard to get!
I brought back this 2003 bottling from Belgium. It was one of the three beers I was determined to find when over there.
Poured into a Duvel tulip it shows a hazed golden orange color with a BIG foamy yellow-tinged white head that laces the glass rather nicely.
Smell is complex with may esters and phenols. I get spices and cloves, banana and minty lime, lemon cream and pepper, dark caramel and figs. Wow! More like a tripel with a pepper spice kick than a Strong Pale Ale.
Taste is Dupont product for sure. I get that green hoppy skunk bite (in a pleasant way) with honeyed bananas, white pepper, figs, and who knows what light spices (even though the bottle says there are none in it - must be the yeast). Truly amazing.
Mouthfeel is the best bar none. It is so creamy that it almost feels more like a mousse than liquid.
Extraordinarily drinkable until I fall on the floor from too many!
