3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a big, durable, off-white head, leaving nice lacing. Quite complex nose, it is sweet and nutty yet after a while it develops fruity and yeasty notes as well. Sweet, but with dry spices keeping the balance, dry finish. Fruity with some sourness, hints of mandarin and pepper. Surprising light-bodied. A Belgian masterpiece.
