Light haziness to the bright gold body, sitting underneath a 1/2 inch sticky white head. Nose is heavy candy sugar, some candied pineapple and pear, some alcohol and some lighter yeast esters. Flavor is much the same - very sweet, too sticky, but just below what I could call cloying. Has the standard light perfumy spices and a faint bit of yeast, finishing with a light dryness and a small hint of alcohol. Reminds me of Unibroue but more sweet and with less body.

I was pleasantly surprised by this creamy straw-colored ale. From the name, I was expecting something taken to extremes, but this was indeed a pleasantly balanced Belgian Strong Ale. The alcohol is well hiddened by a lovely balance of barley and hops. The hops are more flavorful and strong that one expects, but match the hoppiness well. Goes down easy and smooth.
