In short: a apicy belgian ale.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange, with frothy off white head. Good head retention and some lacing. Yeasty, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some oily texture. Taste is fruity, some spicy and citrusy, yeast profiled. Alcohol noticeable. Enjoyable.

I first had this on drought in Brugges then found a bottle in NJ. The drought was definitely better but the bottle had a ton of floaters; poured ( into a trappist glass) a light golden orange color with a lot of chunky floaters and a thick white foamy head. Aroma was of alcohol and some yeast. Somewhat bitter with some orange or lemon in the back. Not bad, but I’ve had a few much better Belgian Ales. Need to try the Brune and their Quad.

Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts moldy-malty, more and more sourish. Soapy-dry background. Unbalanced finish, not very drinkable. Didnt like this.

This is a pretty good Belgian ale. Nice citrus, pepper, and cloves. A bit dry. Paul gave me this one at the UC bar.

On draught at Bhavani in Brugge.

Pours a hazy light orange color with a medium head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little boozy but has a nice orange rind and spiciness.

The flavor is fruit forward and has a subtle spiciness. Some banana and orangepeel. The beer is a bit boozy when cold but this settles down as it warms.

The high carbonation serves the beer well.
