Enjoyed a bottle of this at a recent bottle share. Cuvee Saint-Gilloise (Champions) is a solid example of the style and one that I enjoyed. Good stuff!

Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows funk and horseblanket, melon, elderflower and lemon rind.
Similar flavour; more funk, elderflower, grassy and spicy hops, peach and apricot.
