Closed out my trip to the Lions Pride in Brunswick with this impressive ale and I have to say, it was the most complex beer of a day filled with beers of great complexity.
Served in a snifter, this thing pours a nice light color with a thin head. To be honest, my memory of the initial taste is a bit overpowered by the fine licorice/ fennel taste that comes on during the finish. Indeed, fennel is all I could think about by the end of the beer. Loved it!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Gentle hand. Dated 02/05/2013.
A: Cloudy, golden yellow body with 1+ finger of sudsy, but thick, white head. Good retention. Impressive lacing.
S: Mellow, sweet Belgian yeast with a touch of spice. Coriander. Lighter clove. Grape, pear, apple, peach. Honey. Wheat notes, straw. Vanilla. There is some bubble gum and cotton candy that bring a certain uniqueness to this one.
T: Round, yeasty sweetness with a fruity character. Mild hop bitterness develops. Fairly dry finish and rather clean. A slight bit of lingering fruit on the aftertaste. Low alcohol presence for 10% ABV.
M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Simultaneously creamy and refreshingly effervescent. The latter helps offset the alcohol.
O: Very nice Belgian blonde with good complexity. Sweet, but lots of character, I thought. All around solid and dangerously drinkable for a 10%er.
