Winey yeast dominates the nose. Pours cloudy yellow gold without a thick film of a head. Caramel mixed with fruit somewhere between large pitted and tropical over malt dominate the palate with a drying bitterness on the finish. A touch below medium on the body and a touch above on the carbonation.

Poured a clear dark gold body with one finger head and a decent head and lace patches. Aroma is a mix of candi sugar and dark fruits as I swear I get something akin to figs or toffee, possible other light fruits like apple or pear. Smooth, yeast is present, slightly sweet from fruits and sweet malts but also a bit boozy and then a finish of dry crispness thanks to a smattering of hops. Balance is a little off but it's good.

Apricot in color. One-finger of off-white head thins out quickly.

Aroma is thick with bubblegum, cotton candy, pear and orange. Are we going to be too sweet here? We will find out soon...

Mostly sweet with caramel, sugar cane, subtle spice and slight hops. Balance isn't bad, but definitely leans to the sweet side.

Medium bodied and creamy with a dry finish. Alcohol is fairly noticeable, a fact that works well here.

Digging this one and daydreaming about a future Belgian adventure where I will surely make a stop and enjoy this one at the source.

On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and spices. Taste is much the same with grain and spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the mouthfeel is off on this one.
