served in a St. Bernardus glass.
Bought the 6 pack today after contemplating it every time i went to the liquor store over the past few weeks. Had never had anything from Great Divide before, but was intrigued by the sub-$10 relatively strong belgian 6.
the look honestly reminded me of a cheapo beer, with the exception of pretty good lacing as the glass empties. Light, straw colored with an almost non existent head.
The smell reminded me of any classic belgian style. Grainy, but slightly sweet, with alot of funky belgian yeast presence.
The taste is what really got me though. I didnt have high expectations for it after the nose and look, but it caught me totally by suprise. Smooth, a slight refreshing bitterness, and the belgian yeast I constantly crave. This will probably turn into a good regular 6 I will be purchasing on a regular basis to sit beside the new-brew-try-ers.
Overall this was a great beer for the price. I will be trying more of the Great Divide brews because of this. Great first impression

Nearly perfect crisp light golden color with fantastic clarity. White two-finger head rises and quickly falls. Little lacing.
Nicely spiced, clovey, a touch of dry banana, crisp.
Airy, light, no bitterness, smooth, easily drinkable, not overly spiced, heavy carbonation is nice and not too distracting, sweetness is leveled and not over taking. Very well blended
Solid ass brew! Very well thought out and well placed flavors. My only draw back was the cold harsh carbonation. Everything else rocked. Highly recommended.
