Aromawise, I was met with spicy notes exemplary of Belgian yeasts, alongside sweet pears and alcohol. Also golden, but not as cloudy as the Achel, this could be due to topping the bottle, while it was poured with a good and comparably retained/impressive white head. Though there is a complexity of spice and fruits in the flavour, I was a bit disappointed by an excessive booziness and obvious warmth alongside an equally excessive sweatiness to the yeast that - while not bad - were to me less pleasant than its peers offered. Much drier and perhaps better balanced, though with a lighter body and carbonation than their peers that perhaps prevented the masking of the booze. Perhaps it was overhyped for me, but though enjoyable and quite drinkable, I was more blown away by the nuance of the others and wonder if this simply commands its great respect (primarily) on legacy.

Big head, nice lacing. Full body taste yet light color; a little citrusy with a kick. profile - May 26, 2012
Strong, but great flavors. Spicy and malty, but very good

Citrus & slight hop aroma, but an awful finish and aftertaste. Possible I got a bad bottle, but cannot recommend. Update: 2nd bottle not as bad, but didn't care for the licorice finish.
