Poured from a 12oz bottle but into a pint glace (not the best presentation for this style), nice white head with good lacing. Carbonated very well; without excesive gass but enough air to get out the smell and flavor. Aroma is fruity but not syrupy. Graney well balaced flavor witout the yeast tart often found in American Belgium style ales. Round and chewey, you can tell it is strong but would probably not guess 8.5%.

Pours a very hazy amber-peach-orange body beneath a short head of white foam that holds fairly well and initally leaves some nice lace at the outset of the glass. The nose is fruity, spicy (coriander?), and yeasty with a bit of hay-like/wheat-ish malt and some mild, spicy hops. It's quick in the mouth with a medium body and delicately effervescent carbonation that lets it pass readily. The flavor, however, is more imposing and tends to linger in the finish. It's spicy and hoppy (also spicy, and floral), and along with a solid bitterness, that helps to balance it's sweetish, delicately candyish, lightly citrus-rind like, and grassy/straw-like maltiness. Surprisingly, the alcohol is well-hidden here, as it's seems to stand out a bit in their Abbey (dubbel). Nicely done, and a perfect after dinner beer - or pair it with some Thai food, stinky cheese, or salad with oil and sesame seeds.

I am not a Belgian fan....but this is a solid beer and would recommend it. The beer poured a clear orange with thin white head that is leaving a lace. The scent carries typical Belgian flare with coriander spice. The taste is also typical of most Belgians but this is very well balanced with decent spice. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall the beer is solid for any Belgian fan.
