Finally getting to try this one.
Pouring from a 12 oz can this beer pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice fluffy head.
The nose is slightly subdued but hints of what's to come.
The taste is a little grassy, a little bit of funk a little bit of fruit and whole lot of goodness.
This is an excellent beer and a great representation of the style.
And the name is pretty damn good too.

A: Poured from the can into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy orangey-amber with a big (2-finger) ivory-colored head. Leaves good splotches of lace on the glass.

S: Spice and fruitiness over sweet malt.

T: Sweet malt foundation, then fruit (overripe apples come to mind) with a touch of spice. Quite sweet. Alcohol (9% ABV) is well hidden, showing up as a warming sensation in the belly but providing only a touch of warmth at the back end of the sip. A bit too sweet, IMO. Needs a bit of a drying, crisp finish to improve.

M: Medium in heft, nice creaminess.

O: This is good, just a little sweet for my preference.
