Pours a transparent amber orange with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and biscuity Belgian malt with a light touch of spices and fruity yeasty esters. Starts with some effervescence and malty sweetness with a nice balance of peppery clove and orange peel with some warming acidity showing up in the finish. A decent Belgian strong ale with good authenticity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a champagne beer is both appearance and taste. Throw in the effervescence as well. This beer is fruity, yeasty, and a bit funky. It is light drinking but quite complex. Alcohol cannot be tasted but is definitely there. A very tasty and enjoyable beer.

Bottle pour into large tulip glass. Very artsy design on the label. Ok, so here comes the elusive "Grand Cru" style. Pours a dark orange/amber with hints of red. Fizzy white head, persistent. Aroma is sour/tart, citrus, banana, spice, bread, and yeast. Complex. Flavor is sour, citrus (green apple) and slight funk. Sweetness is strong at first then gives way to a dry finish. Medium bodied. Longer duration. Not too much alcohol present in nose or mouth.
