Kuparinen, punaiseen vivahtava olut ja paksu, runsas, valkoinen vaahto. Nätti olut. Tuoksussa on hedelmäisyyttä, karamellia ja siirappia. Maultaan olut on hieman makea, hedelmäinen, rusinainen ja aavistuksen mausteinen. Melko kuiva.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl. (11.16oz) bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 45°. Color is a hazy orange gold with very good carbonation and a very tight smooth white head. Aroma is a fruity Belgian yeast scent. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a light malt taste giving it a nice touch of toffee then a nice fruity Belgian yeast with pear and pineapple. After taste is slightly dry as the fruit flavor lingers. Overall, like everything I’ve had from this brewer, this is a great Belgian Ale.
