Besides being very interested in this beer because of the fact that it is brewed in a medieval castle... This is a damn good beer! It pours a hazy light brown with specs of hops and spices floating around. The color almost resembles an iced tea. Right on the first taste, I noticed the crisp brightness. It is very refreshing and the spices blended work well with the non-filtered brew. Belgium beers never disappoint, this one is very good. The 8.5% alc/vol is hidden well with the almost creamy aftertaste, but it warms you nicely. I would love to drink this outdoors on a cold night. Overall, I would highly suggest trying this one before the cold weather ends.

Bottle. Poured a semi-opaque Amber color with a proud head. Smells neutral. A little sweet, a little spicy. Malt forward; no hops. Maybe a bit medicinal. The first sip did nothing for me. The yeast brings a strong bite. The spices aren't overwhelming by any means but they also make me rear back a bit. The second sip and those following after are mostly more enjoyable. I adjust to the flavor and pick out some nuances. Almost like a spiced bread. It's not overly sweet,mwhich is a plus for my palate. The Belgian aspects of the beer aren't all-encompassing. I like that but I am also a bit confused as to what the thesis of this beer is. It's kinda Belgian, kinda spicy, kinda bland. I don't know. The best part of this one is its body and alcohol masking. The Anne Frank of alcohol. I had no idea; this one shiv'd me with its alcohol content. To finish the story, this one was not a beer I would come back to.

A- Pours a hazy amber with sediment and lively carbonation. One finger of fluffy off white head lasts to the bottom of the glass and leaves well defined rings of lace.

S- leafy, peppery. orange peel, coriander.

T- crisp, astringent bitterness. Coriander and orange peel again. Slightly watery finish. Very herbal.

M- light. Active carbonation. Clean and crisp finish.

O- interesting. I was expecting more body from and winter seasonal.
