Draft. This seemed like the quintessential Belgian ale. Surprisingly full mouthfeel, nice flavors from the hops and yeast too. You could easily drink this as a session ale and it was unobtrusive for a Lieven 3 course dinner. Very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle, poured into my tulip glass. ABV 7%
Looks really nice with its deep orange golden colour and the tall, snow white soapy head. Good retention on the foam and quite a lace left around the glass.
On the aroma malts, a bit of alcohol and sugars that actually give it a nice honey-like aroma.
Taste is fruity, with peach notes, some vanilla too, and very light alcohol. Quite sweet, becomes very faintly bitter on the aftertaste.
Medium thickness on the body, average carbonation.
Overall, a good session beer, I expected it to be more bitter for some reason, but it was enjoyable nevertheless.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Geur lijkt sterk op Karmeliet. Extreem zacht bier, ontzettend fijn palet. Weinig koolzuur. Enkel de kleur en troebelheid maakt het weinig uitnodigend.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled in Frape in Mestreech. Color is misty dark amber with avereage but fluffy white head. Fruity nose. Aroma is fruity with sweet malt. Flavour is fruity, yeast, caramel. It ends very sweet but still balanced with the sourness of the yeast and some faint bitter hops. Very complex beer but excellent!
