Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Drank in memory of Walt. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of yeast and biscuit malt with some white pepper, oranges and mangos. The flavor is also quite fruity. I get a lot of oranges and toffee, as well as some wheat, yeast, candy sugar and white pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye in honor of our dear friend Walt) cloudy gold, lasting creamy fine white bubbles. Nose of celery, coriander, spicy, very belgian, light stone fruit. Taste of earth, peach, coriander, belgian spicy yeast, an odd beer, but it’s Belgian and I like the hell out of this. Even more so, it represents our collective thoughts about Walt; he loved Belgian beers. He was a mentor, a teacher, a role model for what Ratebeerians should be.
