Great tasting Belgian style beer. Great in the springtime. Being a local of Raleigh it is nice being close to this brewery. This one is one of my favs. They have an awesome run club too!

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dark orange color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Average lacing.

S: A decent enough aroma of yeast, spices, and fruit.

T: Tasted of apples, spices (pepper, cinnamon), a little bit of malt, and yeast. Not necessarily a bad flavor, but a bit out of balance. The spices seem to take over the whole thing.

M: A fair amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not a bad beer, but it doesn't necessarily stack up to its Belgian cousins.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Boulevard Ales pint glass
From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $1.67 (I think)
Purchased: July 26, 2014
Consumed: July 28, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey, golden hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head that went away quickly. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top.

Smelled Belgian spices, kiwi, apple, grape, banana, cloves, cinnamon, slight wintry whiff, peppery spices and caramel.

Tasted pretty close to the nose with caramel, kiwi, Belgian spices, apple, green grapes, cloves, banana, slight peppery spices, cinnamon and still that wintry mix.

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish.

A pretty good Belgian beer overall.

Served in Big Boss Pint glass. Carolina Ale House at RDU airport while watching the USA - GER world cup match (we lost).

A: Dark yellow color. Translucent, slightly cloudy. One inch head. Mostly a boring appearance that you'd expect from a beer of this type. Pretty swirls of carbonation rising from the bottom (how about a bonus .25 for that?).

S: The aroma of honey malt and hops mixed with earthy notes and a hint of rose. Sweet like it tastes. Hoppy hoppy hoppy.

T: First sip is rich with flavors of honey and a floral nose. Sweet but rich with toasted malts. Slightly hoppy but not bitter. Mild 20-30 IBU estimated. Aftertaste of mild hops. Potent flavor with lots of alcohol but blends well with it's malty and sweet goodness. Significant banana notes as the beer warms.

M: Mouthfeel is good, not too dramatic, soft and smooth with some silkiness. Noticeable bite from the hops and carbonation but not overpowering.

O: Overall an extremely delicious beer with a lot of flavor and subtles. Something worth drinking alone. Don't ruin this beer by drinking it with food or after you have had other beers. This is a beer good enough to drink alone and savor. Wonderful draft from Big Boss.
