Pours hazy gold with a thick, pillowy 2’ or more thick white foam cap that perches above the rim of the glass and produces intricate Belgian lace with each sip. The palate features yeast driven esters and phenolics – light spicy fruit – suspended in a airy yet creamy malty emulsion. The body is light for a beer this size and delightfully creamy. Slightly sweet but very well balanced and not cloying. The 9% alcohol is smooth and deceptive with a gentle warming the only warning of its presence. A 750 ml bottle is the perfect accompaniment for an evening when you do not need to go anywhere.

I picked up a big two year old bottle to drag to a party with mostly wine snobs in attendance so I would have something decent to defend. It held its own.

It is a little dark and mysterious looking, with fine head. The aroma is a reserved fruity yeasty smell.

The taste is well settled in after twenty three months, and very well behaved. There is nothing offensive. Good balance.

The aftertaste is a pleasant experience. Overall, above average. If you can get some aged to two years, get it.

Had on tap in a snifter. This fine Belgian triple pours a hazy peachy/yellow glowing color with
a fine white head and beautiful lacing. Nose of honey, Belgian yeast, fruit esters of apple, and
a dash of light citrus. There is a touch of hops in the background. Flavor is off the charts
fantastic. Sweet Belgian candy sugars to the front and sides, ever so light hops in the back,
fruit flavors of light citrus and light spicy Belgian yeast on the aftertaste with a smooth well
carbonated mouthfeel. An excellent example of the style from the birthplace of great ale.
