One of my absolute new favorites. I am obsessed! This was a real treat.

Like drinking tart cherry juice spiced with clove and cinnamon; just the right amount of sweetness that lent a near-perfect drinkability, a fantastic follow-up to my Delirium Tremens. In fact, I enjoyed it even more. Loved this beer and I´ve made it my go-to!!

Appearance: Light golden with moderate haze; white head that dissipated quickly; some lacing.

Smell: spice, malt, just a hint of sour apple

Taste: the warming alcohol and peppery spiciness is quite pronounced; the fruit I got at first was pear -- as the bottle went on, slight banana esters.

Mouthfeel: prickly, with some slight syrup but less than expected

Overall: not overly complex; the warming alcohol and spice are what stick out; not in my top few for the style, but still very good

I love the style, very nicely balanced and not overly caramelized like some of the other Belgian style beers.
