Pours a bright, clear gold colour. Smells sweet, spicy, and slightly alcoholic, with a typical "Belgian yeast" smell to it. Tastes very much like it smells, very balanced and smooth, sweet, spicy, alcoholic, and "Blegian yeast".

Aroma hints at the higher alcohol content, some of the alcohol is evident in the taste, but not overpowering. Lots of sticky lacework on the glass. Flavor of toffee under the alcohol tang.

From Carrefour. In Teku glass. After dinner. A bit alcoholic but not unpleasant. However, needs to be taken with care, as experience demonstrates that it produces terrible hangovers.
