Bottle. [thank you, dedollewaitor]
Pours deep amber orange with a fine, creamy, yet rather fizzy off-white head. Aroma is great, lots of chewy malts, yeast, pine-like hops, good caramel. Nice creamy mouthfeel with lots of tiny bottles. Flavour is wonderful, very dry, nice malt balance with an affirmative bitterness. This is one nice, bitter Belgian :o)

Bottle courtesy of beermouth. Pours a hazy deep yellow, bordering on orange. A fine, slightly thicker than film, head stays on the beer. Aroma has flowers, fruits, yeast and a soft sulfuric note. Taste is typical Belgian, sweet, slightly fruity sour, quite dry. A slight bitterness at the end. Not vinious, but warming.

cloudy dark yellow, smooth lacing offwhite creamy head.
yeasty sweet yellow fruity aroma, well balanced and blended mild aroma.
flavor is yeasty, dough, malty sweetness, balanced, hoppy, not the usual yellow fruity flavor, but a more dry flavor, dough and flour is prominent. A bit strange, but good anyways.

Golden with a nice head and a good lace. The aroma is very floral and fruity in an almost perfumed way. the mouth feel is rather full. The flavour is sweetish with notes of flower and it’s quite citrussy, actually more like grapefruit. In the finish I also find light notes of caramel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of citrus and bitter hop backed by earthy spice notes. Hazy peach color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is a bit woody/funky with caramel, spice and hop bitter. Heat arrives quickly. The finish is quite dry, almost astringent, and some medicinal wood and bitter hop are present. Very interesting; very tasty.
