4.2/5 rDev +5%
A- pour produces a 2 finger slightly off white head that rests atop a golden- hey colored body. Carbonation looks active. Leaves a nice crown on top like good belgians 4
S- big Belgian yeast aroma that is very nice, lemon, earthy, pear, candied sugar, apple, white pepper, alcohol is present in smell but not detracting. The smell is very enticing 4.5
T- a dry beer with all the good belgian traits. Yeast is slightly sweet slightly funky, also hints of lemongrass, pear, pear, slightly tart, candied sugar. The hop presence is nice and very complimentary. Alcohol is present but not detracting from the taste at all 4
M- good crisp mouthfeel. Not exceptional but solid 4
O- it's Belgian style beers like this that I really love. This is a solid beer I really like the generous hop addition to this. Great beer 4.5

4.1/5 rDev +2.5%
The color is mostly golden with a tinge of orange all over. A bit more clear than I expected, but bubbles galore up top and basically coming from everywhere. The head is huge and white with both large and small bubbles and every size in between. Really nice lacing with this.
Smells of hops; funky, fruity, tangy yeast; maybe some grape, apple or pear or a combination of the three. Very champagne-like, but in a good way.
The taste is all over the place. There's lemongrass and straw early on, with some apple and pear thrown in for good measure. The finish is hoppy bitter with some tartness (Granny Smith apples?).
Almost complex but not quite. Light bodied and sweet, followed by bitter, tart, dry and effervescent.
Overall a really nice Belgian rendition by an American brewery. It's pretty easy to drink and not exceptionally filling, with a good alcohol level that's easily masked.

3.5/5 rDev -12.5%
750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a massive white head. At one point I have to stop and wait because there is much more foam than liquid in the glass. It takes a good amount of time to dissipate and levels off at a healthy half finger or so of foam. Nice soft foam clings to the glass.
The nose is somewhat subdued and doesn't really have all that much going on. Belgian yeast and peppery spice are here as well as a slightly fruit character, maybe some citrus notes.
The taste is step up from the nose. The same characteristics are here for the most part. Yeast and the same peppery spice are prominent. The fruity character isn't as strong, but there is a nice, earthy character towards the finish. At times there seems like there is a citrusy aftertaste, like grapefruit or lemon rind, but it isn't consistent.
Nice lively carbonation and medium body make the beer feel lighter. It's extremely crisp, clean and extremely dry.
Overall, this was a decent beer. It says on the label that it's supposed to be hoppy and there wasn't much of that going on here. I suspect it may be better fresher. The beer did seem like it was missing something.
