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.

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.
