This pours a golden yellow color with lots if carbonation for a thick, fluffy head. The aroma is very yeasty with some hints of citrus. Rich yeasty taste very filling decent spices flavors there are sure to fill your stomach. Pretty decent for an American made Belgian brew but this was still missing something to put it over-the-top.

750ml bottle split between two large snifters. Poured vigorously, so any sediment is probably mixed in.

Pours very cloudy, golden, with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Smell is yeasty, grassy, slightly spicy, hint of lemon.

Taste is surprisingly crisp, lemony, a bit hoppy/lemony, Very yeasty, bready.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, this is a very solid beer, though not spectacular.
