Bottle, Pours light amber, with a lot of bubbles. Very aromatic, sweet smelling grassy aroma, with a fervent yet short-lived head. Flavor is quite pleasant, but a little biting for my taste. Sharp palate, but goes down nicely. Would get this one again.

bottle sample from a while back, poured a deeper golden clear colour with a white head, caramel sweetness, sweet overriped fruits, banana, honey, boozy alcohol finish in the back, unpleasant heavy finish.

I don’t see the point of getting this kind of beers to 11% abv, unless the guys who usually drink it make it a pride... I already find Westmalle would better be a little less boozier. This is hugely boozy.
