4.45/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: Label has very cool artwork and graphics that is very eye catching. Label has North Coast logo, ABV info, web info, and a bit of brewery info. Neck label gives a small description and back story on the beer, and has golden North Coast logo. Cap has North Coast whale on it.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 16oz snifter led to a 2 finger white head of a light airy density atop a hazy golden yellow/orange beer with a ton of carbonation bubbles rising from the glass. Retention was 3min 16sec before fading to a thick coating and ring with OK lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of belgian yeasts and spices. Clove can be detected as well as sweet fruits such as pear, ripe oranges, and banana. Slight floral hops and dry malts.
Flavor/Taste: Tastes of light vanilla on the front end along with belgian yeasts an spices found in the nose. Midpoint is very clove heavy along with sweet fruits such as pear, ripe oranges, and bananas. Tastes like Tutifruity baby food. Back end has a nice slight hop bite and a bit of maltiness.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation for a smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: This is an excellent brew that is a fine example of the style. It has all the traditional characteristics of the style that one would expect. A must try! Classified as a Belgian Strong Ale @ 7.6% ABV. Consumed 7/16/2013.

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!
