B+

750ml into a tulip. Pours a nearly clear amber gold, dense yellow cream colored head, excellent lacing.

Aroma is of light skinned fruits, powdered sugar dipped apricot, slight spices, not particularly yeasty. If a crate of these fruits began to rot, the ooze from the bottom would be a note found here and in many other belgians. Some would say to like this is an acquired scent.

Taste has gritty pear. Full bodied well round flavor. A mild dry twang intros a tiny dull bitterness as the aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied lively mildly astringent mouthfeel.

ABV 6%.
Poured into a tulip type of glass. One finger of head, white in colour and thick, that didn't stay for long. Colour is pale golden,slighty haze in my second pour after I shook the bottle a bit. with average activity in the glass.
Sweet aroma. A smell of old bread that thankfully is quite faint and it's cobered by aromas of dark fruits.
Dark fruits like plums and dates also traceable on the taste. You could say it has a sweet taste.
Medium thickness on the body and average carbonation.
Overall, hmm. There are better samples of the type out there, and I know because I have tried some.

Poured from an inch or so above the glass gave this beer a big white head that settles into a pretty nice lacing above a hazy honey golden colored blonde.

When I first took a whiff of this I really didn't get much coming off it so I swirled the glass as I held it close to my nose and this released a lot of light and different aromas. Light hops, grains, grapes, yeast, dark fruits and even lighter of alcohol, spices, and apricots.

A light darker fruits taste, light yeast with some washed out grain malts sneaking in there.

A light dry slightly bitter aftertaste on the medium bodied affair.

Pours a clear, dark yellow liquid with a fluffy white head perched atop. Great retention, good lacing.
Smell is malt, citrus, vanilla, cardboard(?), clove and pepper. Nice balance and complexity.
Taste is the same without the light vanilla note.
Medium body though it leans slightly fuller. Medium-light effervescence. Drying, clean finish. Nice brew.
