Had at the Dieu du Ciel! brewpub in Montreal. Nice, golden color. Nice dark fruit flavor, especially the dates. Has a good Belgian flavor, but not too heavy. An excellent choice for summer for Belgian fans. pushkinwow (2781) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Tap sample at DDC. Light amber, off-white head. Plum, raisin, yeast, nice and sweet. Nice carbonation, medium bodied, sweet with a nice booze bite, slightly dry/hoppy at the end. Unique for a belgian ale but worth trying.
