From the Van Honsebrouck brewery, the beer is a dark blonde in color.
It retains it's head very well, and is big and bubbly when pouring.
It reminds me of pears to drink, but this beer is no slouch on the alcohol content at 11% abv, and it very quickly reminds you of that fact. It might be a little too strong for some, in that the alcohol grabs you almost quicker than the flavor. There's a sugary taste there too, and perhaps cloves.
Some like it hot, some don't. If you like it hot, you may like this.
For all that, it's not a heavy beer. It has good carbonation, and is smooth to drink.
Here, in SC, I got a four-pack for $17.60
