Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle, bottled on FEB 25 2010, with a papered logo different than pictured.
A: Cloudy, pale straw with light white head and decent lacing.
S: Very faint, maybe due to alergies, but mild floral hops and very yeasty.
T&M: Tastes much better than the faint smell. Nice balance of spices, quality yeast, and mild floral hops. Light to medium bodied.
This is close to La Fin du Monde and Duvel in quality. Probably even more drinkable and I recieved it in a local 'beer of the month,' so I'm not sure of the price, but it is probably a great buy for the style!!! The only thing Duvel has on this stuff is a slight edge on the clarity and smell. Excellent!
D: Highly recommended. Try with good artisanal cheeses, or an omelet. A crab omelet would be especially nice. Or spinach. Or asparagus....

Picked up the Brewers' Picks mainly for this, though I like the Titan and get the Collette pretty regularly. Figure I'll just suffer through the three Denver Pale Ales in there (just kidding, actually looking forward to trying those again, as well).
Poured from a bottle into a goblet, light amber, really no head to speak of, just a thin sheen of small bubbles across the top and a modest collar. Totally clarified, light effervescence.
Smells sweet, yeasty, definitely get that Belgian yeast and some spice. Bottle says noticeable hops, but I'm not noticing it as much as they seem to think I should. A little boozy. Flavor follows suit, with more hops, biscuit and malt presence. Definitely sweet, with a nice boozy edge.
Overall, why did they take away the six packs, again? Seriously, this stuff's really good, worth getting the brewers' picks to try it if you haven't. Recommend if you like their Collette and Orabelle.
