Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A nice fluffy and off tan and very pinhead even bubbled head. Three fingers tall and settles nicely, with lots of rising fast tan carbonation along the edges. Body color is a nice deep amber almost red, but hints at a rusted burnt orange and quite opaque.

Hints of classic overseas Belgian character, sucrose sweet and lots of toasty brown sugars to match. Some mild clove sensations, warm herbal tea strangely, and soft cinnamon.

Palate comes with expected pleasure. Nice subdued and sweet brown sugar and cinnamon with a good carbonated and dried palate. Crisp almost champagne like but with raisin and fruit density. Noticeably warm but not horrifically boozy though.

Overall, while not a strong pale, it's a textbook Belgian amber pretty much.

Big coarse foam on the initial pour in the wine glass. Clear amber color.

Quite a fullsome Belgian flavor with the sweet yet bitter yet dry complexity. Fruity with mango quite distinct, some peach, and a pomegranate finish. Quite dry after some sipping. A mineral aftertaste. Some bitterness as you sip. A pleasant, interesting brew with plenty of Belgian character and that tart, darkly tinted fruitiness.

From the 750 ml corked bottle bought at Whole Foods in Foggy Bottom. I don't know if this is a 2013 bottling or older, but label says #82 with a (best by?) date of 4/10/15.
