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.
