Thanks to Patricks!

Pours a nice, orange beer with a quite big amount of yeast in it. Nice big snow white head rising tall in the appropriate glassware. Some carbonation running along the sides of the glass.

Smell comes on big! Nice sweet malts, much yeast and a real flowery smell. Very sweet with some butterish traces, honey and sugar have prescence together with cloves and perhaps hay? Real nice smell anyway.

Comes on palatte quite perfect. Nice filling feel to it. Yeast and malts explode together with some sugarsweet fruits and a nice grassy tone in there. Nice alcoholic prescence and a fine carbonation makes this very good and tasty. Lots of nice fruity flavours and some likeness to wheat beers. Finishes warming, with a soothing alcoholic prescence blended with yeast, fruits and honey. Somewhat dry in the aftertaste as well.

Ceratinly a nice brew, good belgian (as usual). Nice complex flavours in there but still nice and light.

750ml bottle corked and caged. Pours out a clear golden orange body with a tall off white foamy head. Good amount of lacing clings to the glass as it is consumed. Aroma is pretty big with a bunch of things going on. Lots of spice and fruity sweet notes seem to dominate. Some toasty malts in there as well. Sweet fruit flavors of pears, apples and other fruits lead off the flavor. Various spices are present as is a bit of a yeasty note. Finishes spicy sweet with a bit of a lingering spiciness. Lively with carbonation and very smooth going down. Ample body. Very drinkable and complex stuff from a style that usually doesn’t impress me.
