Bottled. Alicante (Spain) was the least likely place i thought to find this excellent Belgian, but i did. Best beer of my holiday in Spain. :-)

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 26, 2008
Bottled sample aquired via lubiere. Amber in colour with medium to strong carbonation. The aromas are somewhat saison-like, with notes of hay, marshmallow, and lemon. Flavors are of pale malts, grassy and earthy hops, thyme, mint, and kosher salt. Light bodied, and hides its alcohol well. Quite drinkable, but with loads of character too. Surprisingly good, considering its low ratings.

En bouche, fruité aspect lactique, malté allant vers la mélasse/sucre candi avec un profile fruité noir persistant.
