Just about every place in belgium has this on tap. Excellent brew. I've had this numerous times but this one was in a sample, globe sized about 6oz. at Delerium Cafe in Brussels, Belgium.
It pours golden in color. Very thick and syrupy dispite looking like a lite beer. Translucent, not cloudy. Very sweet smell, possibly floral in there as well as a slight note of alcohol as the beer is 8.5 abv. This beer is sweet to the tounge as well on the first sip. Can't drink it too fast though as it is very thick and syrupy. No noticable or dercenable bitterness nor any hop notes. Excellent taste for the Belgian Golden ale lover.

Corked & caged 750ml poured into my Hair of the Dog tulip...

A: Pretty clear golden straw with a bright white head that doesn't quite stick around...some lacing on the glass.

S: Phenolic and fruity...light peppery sensations and crisp sweet maltiness. Suggestions of grape bubble gum and honey.

T: Follows the nose, on the fruitier side rather than funky, but there is also some earthy husk essence in the malty backbone. Hints of honeysuckle. Peppery and phenolic...a bit of earthy hop leaves a touch of bitterness on the finish.

S: Medium body with a drying finish via some alcohol esters and a light touch of heat.

O: Pretty good, not quite run-of-the-mill in its flavor profile but not my cup of tea either.
