This pours a clear dark golden without much head.

The can says "using pure cultured yeasts" and its the Belgian yeasts that dominate the nose. Not knowing what type of beer this was before pouring it I was quite surprised, but pleasantly so. Some sweet malts too.

A nice spicy Belgian style palate. No hoppiness to speak of. A bit of sweetness.

Medium bodied with a bit of alcohol warmth.

This is a pretty good effort by Asahi to do a Belgian. Very surprised.

Got this one from Japan,can 0,35l. Most of the text is on the Japanese,only information understand is about finest yeast.

A-Dark golden with lots of tiny bubbles. One finger white milk foam,lasting all the way.

S-Didn't feel much in it,usual pale aromas.

T/M-It is good to drink,specially if it's cold. Some malt sweetness,gentle fruits,maybe bit watery.

O-Not the best beer,but it is good,no doubt.
