I tried this beer as I tend to like most of the Belgian ales. This one has a nice golden hazy appearance and traditional ale smell. However, I expected the taste to be similar to Leffe or beers of that style. Instead, it is closer to an ale/lager mix that almost has a "stale" flavor that is complex & hard to describe. The higher alcohol content is masked well. This beer grew on me but not something likely to be on my list of buy again beers. Somewhat surprised at the exceptional ratings...
