Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a clear pale brown colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malts, fruits and lightly alcohol. Average frizzy carbonation and medium body. Taste is a short shot of bitterness followed by a long sweet and dry finish. Overall, a good beer but a bit too sweet for me.

A big Belgian strong ale that is so smooth and easy to drink. Greet big body in this beer, but not as flavorful as I'd hoped. Solid fig and molasses flavor.
