4.2/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

I used a tulip and drank at cellar temperature.

An awesome three-finger head of pure white froth. The foam is incredibly tight-knit and looks soft as a pillow. One of the prettiest, most delicate heads I've seen, and it has great retention. Beauty DOES last in this case. A pretty clear golden honey body.

This has a terrific aroma of lemon, green apples, tart grapes, and white bread. Smells a little of spices too... I'm not exactly sure what... maybe coriander, cloves, or mace? There's a hint of vanilla, too.

The taste is of tart green apples and hops, with a lingering breadiness in the finish. Not too complex, but still really tasty. I would say it's bitter for the style... much more hoppy and not as sweet as other Belgian strong pale ales.

Carbonation is high, as it should be in a Belgian ale, but not out of control.

The main "mischief" this ale is up to is teasing me with indescribable spiciness. Overall, a very "American" (meaning hoppy) take on a Belgian style.

4.21/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a bright cloudy gold with a 1/2 inch think foamy white head, very appealing.

Smell - Citrus malty aroma with slight hop profile.

Taste - extremely smooth, malts and yeast upfront. Bitter on the end, with sweet carbonation finish. Orange and citrus linger. Orange overpowers.

Mouthfeel - Light - medium mouthfeel, dry on palate.

Overall - This is a great beer balanced perfectly. Very complex from start to finish.
