L- Small head, slight lacing around the glass. Pretty surprised by the head, honestly. Golden straw gold with a slight amberish color
S- Huge phenol notes with a following spicy aroma. This beer is extremely yeasty on the nose. Very real and honest on the nose.
T- Spice (coriander), yeasty bitterness, bready, slight apple and pear, slight bitterness. This is held together by a Very subdued flavor all together.
F- Medium bodied beer. Honestly a bit chewy.
O- Very good beer. Traditional to the Belgian standard, tasty, and heavy. Extremely rudimentary, it seems... In a good way.

Absolutely garbage brew, don't know how they've convinced plebs that this is actually decent.

Tastes like someone's old filthy underwear that's been baked under the Arizona sun for a week. Looks like Bud light and honestly I would prefer a macrobrew over this filth.

Save your money for something better. Much better brews out there.

Wow.
This was a present from my oldest son. He was trying to impress me by coming to Beer Advocate for a wonderfully high rating. How do I tell him it tasted like Bud Lite soaked in his high school gym socks? How can ANYone who's tasted really great Belgian ales give this more than a 2? The aftertaste is high rear on the roof of my mouth. My tongue rejected it Someone else on this forum suggested the taste of melted plastic in a cheap beer. I think my rating is better.
No, it wasn't old.
No, it wasn't mis-treated.
The yeast that gave their lives to produce this should be embarrassed.
Minimal malt.
Questionable hops.
It tastes like something I once had in high school when a wino bought us a 6-pack for $20.
Bottom line: I will *never* have this again (unless one of my other kids gives me a bottle - in which case I'll man up and say Thank You while secretly cursing under my breath).
P.S. I wonder if my urine will smell funny after drinking this?

Well made with no flaws. A little too phenolic / spicy for my personal preference.
