Poured from a 330 ML bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a great honey smell (go figure) along with malt and caramel.
Appearance- This is a golden amber color with a thick off-white head.
Taste- Fantastic taste of honey and malt. World class flavor in my book.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation
Overall- World Class, that sums it up. It is a "must try" beer.

It is hard to fault this ale. OK, it's too good. It has a lovely light fragrance (not an aroma, a fragrance). The head is a little weak, but the color is sublime.

The taste is something I don't think I could ever get enough of. It is a good thing this is pretty expensive or I would drink it all day instead of going to work. I hope the perfect aftertaste lasts until tomorrow.

Poured into a 33cl chalice.

A: Clear golden with 1 finger head

S: Honey, aromatic hops, yeasty

T: Honey and malty. Then bready and yeasty. With a final hops flavor. The after-taste is sweet!

M: Crisp, smooth medium sticky body with just the good amount of carbonation.

O: Love love love this beer! A good belgian ale, with honey flavor and with just the decent amount of hops to complement the sweetness.

Poured into a duvel glass, it is a soft, lightly cloudy golden amber color with a small foamy head. Beautiful aroma! Sweet and flowery with a soft vanilla spiciness and a subtle fruitiness. The latter shows up immediately in the flavor: a well-rounded fruitiness supported by a lot of coriander spice. A little medicinal phenol character and light bitterness add some nice complexity. Body is a little thin, but soft and creamy.

Too bad this is priced so high ($12 for a 4-pack) or I'd be drinking this on a regular basis. This would make a very nice aperitif.
