This is a little bit good.
Brewed in Flanders, this is a definite Franco Belgian beer sensation.
Initially frothy, the beer soon settles and you are given 750ml of pure beer beauty.
A deep and rich caramel you can almost dip your finger into, all sugared almonds, toffee apples and all things soft and sweet.
But this girly niceness is just a cover for the maddening and crazily disarming pepper fuelled, yeast enhanced pummelling that follows.
You get a little led astray by the lightness here, and it becomes dangerously easy to forget that this is a pint and a half at 8.5% ABV as you merrily glug away at this beast, with its easy drinking soft lager flavours and its subtle and sexy light honey glow in your glass.
“Drink me quicker”, it pants as you pour your second helping.
And then all of a sudden, you’re a bit the worse for wear.
So, to sum up, this is a beer that’ll give you a fulfilling quickie after the disco and still be waiting with more when you get home.
