Commercial Description
Lightly scented aroma followed by a subtly bitter taste. It leaves a subtle raisin fruitiness on the palate ending with a pleasant bitter tonic when swallowing.

    Any beer served in a chalice is a winner. This carries the old hoppy taste of a refined European ale. If you like a good tasting beer, and you're in Belgium, get this over the Stella.

    A hazy orangey yellow ale with a large dense foamy white head and fair retention. Nose of brown sugar and creamy vanilla with a light citrus hop presence and a hint of coriander leaves. Palate is biscuity sweet with dry orange flavours predominating and a smooth mouthfeel. It is medium to full bodied. Finishes quite dry with a gentle bitterness that nicely balances out the initial sweet fruity flavours. Well worth seeking out if you are tired of the more mainstream sweeter Belgian ales.

    This beer is pretty good - but I wouldn't recommend ordering at a bar - way too over priced!

    What you should try are some other belgium ales which are very very cost efficient.
