Poured from bottle to pint glass the beer pours a hazy and opaque yellow golden color with a huge 2.5 finger white head, good retention and lacing, looks good. The aroma starts off with a strong belgian yeast along with fruity character: citrus, pears, apples along with clove and hints of bubblegum and pepper. However the alcohol emerges and starts to dominate and thus makes the beer less approachable. The flavor follows suit with an initial rush of belgian clove and bubblegum. Hints of fruit found in the nose as well as a more pronounced pepper flavor. The malt doesn't seem to work with these flavors and doesn't come across balanced, like the flavors are fighting one another and not in a pleasant fashion. Medium bitterness. Alcohol again emerges at the end and as the beer warms. Turn off. Fairly smooth and lighter side of medium bodied. Good carbonation. Overall, I was less than impressed with this beer. Too boozy, flavor doesn't mesh well. Won't return.
