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.
