[Bottle 750ml, 1m to expiration, ~16C]
Lightly hazy golden color with a very large rocky head, leaving laces. Pleasant malt/fruits/yeast aroma. Taste is malty, a true Belgian. Some spice, no bitterness.

Thanks to Brent at Redlight Redlight for finally putting this on draught when I happen to be at the bar. Bright orangish yellow with a frothy head. As it flowed across my palate, the taste evolved from spicy up front to sweeter, citrusy in the end. More hops in the finish than what I was expecting. Definitely worth the wait. Oh, and to whoever stole the dAchouffe statuette: Bring it back. I want a chance at it.

Had that fermented yeasty aroma bread dough and wheat. Darker shade of peach colored body with decent white head. At first the flavor was of bitterness and sour. When beer warmed got some lemon and spicey flavor and the bitterness subsided. Decent brew.

Talk about taste progression -- on draft in Belgium, it’s so much about the corriander. In bottle in the US, the spices fade a bit and some nice maltiness comes to the fore. And after cellaring for 8 or 9 years, the spices are gone altogether and so are most of the hops, leaving a slight maltiness and a nice sweetness.

A hazy summer afternoon pour with a farmy fragrant nose. Mouthfeel is even and a little light. Flavor is Belgian spice hops, yeast and malt breadiness. Alcohol is well hidden. A very drinkable strong ale that is a good introduction to Belgian complexity and style.
