look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
poured from a 12oz into my new belgium tulip glass, this one gotten as a surprise as a mistake by the store. I got a 6er of Titan Ipa and this ended up being in one of the slots. Pours very clear with a slight haze to it. Pale golden yellow in color with a creamy white head a finger thick to top it, good lacing and retention as well.
the smell strikes me right off the bat as malty and fruity. Upon a further inspection I detect more strongly a spicing as well. Orange citrus and coriander spice tinge the nostrils while the malty backbone provides a light bready type scent that is honey sweet.
The flavor is quite complex. The first stage is a bold citrus fruit flavor with some sweet overtones to it. This is followed by the body of the brew composed of the malty flavors; I get an herb bread roll and cornbread elements as well as the sweeter clover honey to compliment. The finish gives me a reminder of the Belgian style this brew emanates from with a slightly sour pinch.
The mouthfeel is extremely creamy, it's thick and robust while being light and fluffy at the same time. This quality makes it very drinkable which for a 7.8% brew can be pretty dangerous although enjoyable nonetheless.

4.46/5 rDev +19.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.25
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.
