Pours cloudy orange/ amber with a big head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is citrus, a bit of hops and spice. Flavor is of spice, citrus and a bready yeast presence. Hop and alcohol flavors are present, but not pronounced. Leaves a pleasant bready flavor in the mouth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a golden to amber color with a nice initial head with good retention. Lacing was solid but typical for a Belgian. Aroma was of yeast, coriander, pepper, and light citrus. Tangerines came out mid-glass. The flavor was citrus (slight sour), yeast, coriander and other spices, pepper, tangerines, and a minty note. Mouthfeel was moderate and amply carbonated. This came across like a saison and was darned enjoyable in the summer on vacation!

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Blue and white paper wrapper, peeled that off capped with a cork inside. Pop the cork and it starts to smoke, we pass it around sniffing the smoke and the head starts to rise passed the top, don’t be alarmed i saved it from hitting the ground. The pour is amazing orange\copper body underneath a large quickly rising off-white head with good retention. The aroma is heavenly, citrus, hops, belgian spices, sweetness, and fruit. The flavor is slightly hoppy, sweet, loads of citrus, slight fruit, smooth, and well balanced. Good healthy body, great brew.

Bottle, 33cl. A very discreet label for a very good beer. Hazy orange topped by a medium off-white head. Some residue in the end. Aroma isn’t very intense: some notes of fruits, specially of orange and litchis. Flavour is great, strong and not as sweet as others belgian strong ales. Spicy and yeasty, this beer is really pleasant, with the dry finish and small bitterness giving it the right balance. Lovely beer!

Bottled, this poured deep golden with a bright white head. I found the aroma to be musty and pungent. The first tastes were yeasty and earthy with a glint of honey and a slight hoppy bitterness in the finish. For some reason I anticipated a tartness that never came to fruition, but this was enjoyable enough.
