Poured from a 750ml. Dated 28/11/2015, so nearly 2 years old. Light straw and mostly clear except for the last bottom of the bottle that hat a little extra haze. Bright gleaming golden straw in color. Wet fuming rotting bread and apples, peach and apricot on the nose. Just a little too much funk there for my nose. The taste is clean and subdued with a light amber sugar syrup. Biscuit grainy breads persist with a stewed musky finish. Alcohol greasyness fills the midsection along with dried apricot and some gala apple. A nice crisp tangy dried leaf finishes balancing the sweetness well. A little too much cloying sweetness builds after 80% through the 750ml bottle. Chewy and thick that the carbonation and the hops just almost overcome. It balanced nicely with spicy food but also stood well on its own just to sip on.

I purchased this in Belgium and I brought it over here. Poured the 33cl bottle into a mug, pouring a massive head lasting just like Tripel Karpeliet for a similar styles comparison.

Smell and taste orange and malts.

A very good offering that I would purchase regularly if given the chance, it's a pity we don't see that one much on the shelves... cheers!
