On-tap at Yulli's in Sydney during Sydney Craft Beer Week. I'm still getting around to entering my reviews some months later.

Pours a very murky brown colour, perhaps amber at the edges, with a bright white head that stays pretty creamy and fine. Lace is solid, almost sticky and creamy as well. Fine powdery carbonation. It looks very good.

Aroma is estery, with some volatile fruity characters lilting above a sweet, malty basis. A touch of pepper comes through as well. There's even perhaps a suggestion of acidity. It's interesting, if nothing else.

Spicy entry on the palate, with more of those dancing sharp fruity notes mid-palate. Body is full and rich, creating a pleasant smooth and creamy basis like heavy syrup. Some booze is noticeable on the back, but it's cushioned by that lingering heavy sweetness.

It's perhaps a bit too much. It feels a little bit like the beer only succeeds as well as it does because it's too big to fail. Still, it's solid stuff, and one of the better Belgian style ales I've had from Australia.
