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

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.
