Packed with enough flavors and aromas to push this into fine-wine territory. Velvety, creamy mouthfeel with an almost burning alcohol presence that detracts a little from the spicy, fruity flavors. Dessert in a glass. The best Belgian beer I've had to date

93/100

This is a tremendous Belgian. Looks beautiful in the St. Bernardus goblet. I have only had out of the tap. It's so smooth and balanced.
