From the caged corked bottle number L03 12389. Sampled on July 27, 2013.

The pour is golden amber with a frothy white head that lingers and laces.

Ah those unique and expected Belgian esters are alive in this one with pale malts, candied sugar, spices, and maybe a bit of honey.

The body is full and creamy.

The taste has an upfront sweetness with a nod toward honey sweetness and some subtle and mild hops to finish with a low hop bitterness. I liked it very much.
