The beer is golden and moderately hazy with a towering white head, even after a slow pour. The aroma offers Belgian yeast, pear, apple, grassy hops, floral notes. Really tasty and teeming with flavor. Diverse characteristics. Fruity and hoppy with a touch of tangy bitterness to round things out. Not on par with Duvel Tripel Hop and other authentic and outstanding examples of the style, but a tasty beer nonetheless.

Golden and crystal clear if you manage to leave the yeast sediment behind in the bottle. This brew is highly carbonated and has a crazy frothy head. I tried pouring carefully and still ended up with a good three to four fingers of head. The nose on this beer has that distinct belgian yeastiness about it with a good malt presence. The brew has some nice resinous hop aromatics coming through which go nicely with the belgian characteristics. Terrific aroma! Taste is primarily sweet like a malty apple cider but with a pepper kick and some definite tartness to it as well. A little funky. Pretty typical Belgian characteristics with a hoppy west coast twist. Some bitterness from the hops coming through on the finish. Very crisp and dry mouthfeel. Over all this was a great beer that i rather enjoyed.

Shared and poured in small tasting glasses. LOT"s of head on this one. Pour slowly, glass tilt and all. Good lacing all the way down. Appearance is a little cloudy and a nice light golden color. Some nose, but not very prevalent. Taste is good for a style of beer I don't normally go for. Some sweetness and a little acidic bite at the end. Sits on the tongue a little. Overall I personally probably won't purchase this again, but glad to have tried and tasted.

served in a small tasting glass. has a nice Belgian foggy appearance with tons of head. POUR SLOWLY. nose is not strong but the smell is good. no off flavors. taste is good but not as sweet as I would like. leaves little on the tongue but a mild sweetness and slight acidic bitterniss. lacing is very prevelant and carbonation is high. overall a decent beer. I would not buy it again at 12.99 but I also am not a big Belgian lover to begin with.
