4.13/5  rDev +3.3%

Enormous creamy, white, peak-forming head on a cloudy golden liquid. Leaves doilies all the way up the side of the glass.

Smells delightfully yeasty and fruity - lychee, pineapple, canned peaches. Has a mineraly hop smell too.

Immediately juicy, sweet, and fruity tasting with a flash of fruity acids followed by a dryness like sucking on pecan shells. Yea, that dryness is pretty mischievious, but mostly enjoyable. If it cleared out sooner and didn't stick to my teeth it would be a bit better.

It's a really light-hearted beer that means business at the end.

Bright golden color in the glass, translucent enough to see the carbonation. Smelled sweet with hopped up kick to it. Very flavorful taste with easy drinkability. Hopped up to a point where the tase blended well with the hoppy aftertaste. Solid Belgian Strong pale ale.

A: Golden color, slightly cloudy, with a huge and very fluffy head that pretty much never fully subsides. Really nice-looking.

S: Belgian yeasts, citrus, fruit, sweet and sugary.

T/M: A very dry, crisp taste, a little sweet up front, with some hops to follow. The warming alcohol hits on the way down but is otherwise not too noticeable. It's a bit champagne-y, and very nice.

O: A good Belgian-style beer with some subtle twists.

Bruery mischief 

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
