look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Hazy amber golden color with a two finger thick head with good retention.
Aroma of banana and pineapple, mint, Belgian yeast slightly funky, lemon, figs, honey and bread.
Refreshing and spicy flavor, notes of pineapples, Belgian yeast, pear, Cointreau liquor, apple puree, floral hops, coriander and a hint of champagne tartness. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is well disguised.
As its sister, Caracole Ambree, it is a unique and interesting beer, though this one is heavily condimented. Nice brew.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy golden with an ample white head. Lots of carbonation rising.

Aroma of light fruits and light malts. Hard to get a hold of the aroma.

Taste is of spices, fruit, honey. Has some hints of over-ripe citrus, but in a good way.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite cleansing.

Overall, a pleasant beer that I would happily partake in another.

Serving type: on-tap
