3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz/33cL bottle with a double label (lucky, I guess?) and a marking of 31/07/12 on the bottom [Dutch] one. Nose sweet and candyish, pours clear but dark golden with a huge level of carbonation and a huge, frothing white head. Taste is dry and digestible with alcohol warmth and strength, sweetness at the edges but only wispy and not from sugar. Malt is thin and pils-y, body is thin but supported by the bubbles. Relatively clean but a little muddled and generally bland. Very delicate bitterness with a smidgen of hay, dash of wood. Not too much character from the yeast (downright neutral for a Belgian). Efficient alcohol transference mechanism with a shade of naughty class? [2015.12.09: 3.3]

The brew fails too short on a dominant alcohol flavor. Behind this there is a sweet maltiness and slight crisp hop flavors.
