Bottle into a tulip.
First thing to note here is that I am a "yeast in" guy. So I poured the majority of this, then sloshed the rest around to break up the yeast before adding it to the mix.
A : Pours a solid burnt orange-ish yellow color with a frothy one finger head. Minimal lacing. Inviting color, very hazy.
S : Yeasty with malt and some floral to fruit tones of citrus. Hard to decipher what specifics from the smell alone.
T : Big brew. Yeast is upfront but quickly subdued by a heavy peach, apricot, orange fruit flavor that gives it a very crisp bite in between. On swallow you get a strong brush of malt as the citrus tingles the top of your mouth. This one is complex as there are some underlying spice notes as well, but the are overpowered.
M : True to the style, this is a big brew, so very heavy. The bottle fermentation gives it such robust carbonation that it feels as if the brew grows and grows as it lays in your mouth.
D : I love em, but two or so is the most for me do to the higher ABV, and the very filling nature of the brew.

I tried this beer as I tend to like most of the Belgian ales. This one has a nice golden hazy appearance and traditional ale smell. However, I expected the taste to be similar to Leffe or beers of that style. Instead, it is closer to an ale/lager mix that almost has a "stale" flavor that is complex & hard to describe. The higher alcohol content is masked well. This beer grew on me but not something likely to be on my list of buy again beers. Somewhat surprised at the exceptional ratings...
