look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
12oz. bottle poured into a curved tall chalice.
A- Straw yellow with darker hints, almost orange in the center. Cloudy, but can visibly see the carbonation. A very big, dense white head that dissipates down to barely capping the beer. A little lacing down the glass.
S- A showcase of yeast. Some Hefe smells going on, clove, banana, fruity esters.
T- Sweet malt, leads to some spice, and there's just a touch of alcohol, but it plays very well with the other flavors going on. There's just a touch of balancing bitterness on the backend, but ends mostly sweet and grainy with all sorts of yeasty goodness adding to the complexity.
M- for a lighter Belgian blonde, this thing has a really nice malty, creamy thing going on. Just a touch dry on the finish. I really see no way to improve, the mouthfeel is spot on.
O- North Coast doesn't make bad beer. This is just another excellent brew from a great brewery.

Poured bottle into New Belgium globe
A-The appearance has a hazy orange slightly golden looking colored body with less than a half fingered white foamy head that quickly disapates. Decent lacing.
S-The smell has Belgian yeastiness up front with a nice allocation of spices to compliment the aroma.
T-The taste is spicy yet somewhat sweet and a nice complimentary sort of under-shadowed sort of "sweet" tones to give a very nice sort of spicy/sweet/dry aftertaste with a quick dry finish.
M-The mouthfeel has a light to medium body and the carbonation is good for a Belgian Strong Ale.
O-Overall one of my favorite American Belgium Strong Ales. A must try!
