look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Stamped Batch #136, 12/3/13.

A: Hazy, golden honey-colored body with 1 finger of off-white head. Good retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Belgian yeast, European/noble hops. Grass. Hay. Light fruit. Apple. Pepper. Candi sugar. Vanilla.

T: Spicy with black pepper essence and a surprising sweetness initially. A subdued hop bitterness slowly develops. Semi-dry finish. Mild tang develops mid-way and lingers in the aftertaste. Light alcohol for the 8.5% ABV.

M: Moderate carbonation with nice creaminess. Moderate body. Good feel.

O: Sweeter and heavier than I expected. I found the hops to be somewhat buried - especially on the palate. Not a bad brew, but definitely not their best offering.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a teku.

A: Light golden hue. Pours a large, tight, foamy, white head. Settles very slowly. Pervasive lacing.

S: Hops, lemon peel, pepper.

T: Crisp hop make up the base, lemon peel, and some other non-distinct spice and fruit components.

M: Light, crisp, with a steely finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is good. Light hue, thick head, and dry sticky lacing. Nose is hoppy, with a little spice, and lemon citrus. Tastes like it smells...light hops, lemon, and spice. Overall, this is a good quaff.

This beer has a massive carbonation amount as evidenced by the inch thick tightly woven white head of foam. Rich golden colored with incredible clarity. Brussels lacing. I smell that very clean aroma of Belgian Strong ale yeast with that residual candy like sweetness. The mouth is very dry, crisp, carbonated, and it finishes with a gentle warmth due to the alcohol. There's a very dry sugary sweetness in the flavor. Despite the carbonation this is very drinkable.
