Pours a clear darker amber with huge dense cream-colored head, fades slowly leaving an ice cream scoop of foam in the center and a thick sheet of sticky lace down the glass. Smell: pils and candy sugar sweet, fruity with nectarine and berry skin, punchy slightly musty grain note. Taste: pils graininess, spicy, apricot jam with a splash of orange juice and peel, toasted grain note, earthy in the finish. Carbonation builds during the sip pushing the feel from juicy to pillowy, then slicks back, finishing sugary and drying. This is really tasty. A bit hoppy to fit, but otherwise comes off like a nice biere de garde.
Best before the end of 03/2015.

Nice amber orange color with a huge thick head with great retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma of orange flavored effervescent vitamin C with some banana and strawberries.
Pleasant flavor with slightly fruity sour notes, a bit of toasted malts, orange skin, strawberry juice, cloves, a touch of banana, figs and green apples and finishing with a hint of pine. Dry aftertaste with a relative to style decent bitterness.
Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is well hidden.
Very good Belgian ale with a unique taste but also pleasant and easy to drink.
