Notes: Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.
Flavour: Feels like the sound shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed. The taste is characterized by its roundness. The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter.

Amazing smell.
Beer hits the tongue smooth, fruity and malty, very dry with a lasting bitter aftertaste.
Unique beer for me so far.

Poured Into a chilled mug......
Color of white Blonde like Blondie.....bleach blondes are hot...!!
Woooaaa, slow the pour down!!! This brew has a foamy head that simply did not dissapate!...The foamiest frigginn' head I have ever seen in a beer peroid?!?!......
Spicy hops smell, traditional with Belguin beers...
Of the bat Spicy mild hops deep and rich....Floral right away...then notes of crackers, lemon peel and honey!! Dis beer is da bomb!!! @ 9 Percent ABV you can hardly tell...sign of a great beer.
Good carbonated, bubbly....

I got this brew cuz it looked cool, a Pink elephant on the bottle......one word..Induction..I had some belgian beers but this tops any since Sam Adams Belgiun Session beer. lol

I got it at total wine, I suggest anyone to pick one up.

LOOK: Blonde Orange, Coarse head about 2 fingers
SMELL: Malt and Alcohol. Nothing too complex.
TASTE: Surprisingly light and mellow. Strawberry and Banana as other reviews have noted. Very pleasant, especially considering the ABV.
FEEL: Heavily carbonated but not too thick.
OVERALL: I would drink this from the tap if I could. A perfect beer for any occasion.

Have had it many times, but this is the first time to review it here.
Had to pour it in a classic Belgium goblet
Its lighter in color that I remember it.
Lots of carbonation

Definitely getting the strawberry banana on the taste.
This beer is an amazing example of a quality Belgium beer. You cannot go wrong picking up one of these

750ml corked and caged with a 2.20 date printed on the cork. Opened 1-22-22.
Big pop upon uncorking. 2 finger white head with a fine bead and lengthy retention. Yellow gold with a bit of a chill haze and tons of active carbonation. Apricot, floral, and marmalade in an appealing perfume. Yeasty, spicy notes as the beer warms, some orange/citrus and a grassy hop late in the flavor. Light body, high carbonation. Some heat in a finish that is spicy, initially lightly sweet but ultimately finishes dry. Very Good to Outstanding.

Pours an almost clear golden color with a small fluffy head and a lot of lacing.

Smells of bread and spice.

Tastes of bready yeast, sweet malt, bananas and cloves with a slightly bitter finish with some alcohol warmth.

Medium light body with medium carbonation. Brut mouthfeel.

Excellent, subtle & complex!
