Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a medium white top. Nice fruity aroma from the belgian yeasts, hints of citrus, candy and tropical fruits.
Taste is very well balanced. Fruity, light sweet flavor with hints of honey and heather. Finishes on a slightly bitter note along with notes of pepper and a little bit of alcohol warmth as well. Fairly dry. Medium to full body with avg to high co2 levels. The belgians would approve I think :)
