Golden straw colour. Three inches of fine white head. Huge flume of carbonation up the center of the glass. Good lacing.

Sweet pastry aroma. Fruity ... pear.

Nip of hop bitterness at the front end. Very fruity .. green apple, pear and mango. Definit sweetness. No alcohol taste. Sweet, sour and bitter all at the same time. Nice brassy hops bitter aftertaste.

Well carbonated. Soft full feel. Slightly unpleasant tangy feel.

A wonderful Belgian ale. Complex but yet very accessible.
