Cloudy amber color. Floral, earthy, herbal aromas and flavors of herb garden, jasmine, lavender and sage, spiced citrus, and exotic spice honeycomb with a velvety, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, long finish with accents of banana soufflé, spiced nuts, watercress, and pears in cream of wheat finish. A complex and captivating Belgian amber ale with beautifully balanced floral spice and herb notes.
