Sweet candy and piney hoppiness on the nose, very inviting. Hop bomb in flavour, prickly pine hops with a slight sugary aniseed/licorice backing from the Belgian yeast. Firm but soft bitterness which works well. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden brown from the bottle with floating yeast chunks and bubbly off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big amounts oxidation, a hint of caramel and earth. Taste follows, big oxidized maltiness, hops completely gone. Ugh, why did I do this in Belgium.
