better than a duvel. pours a glowing honey color with a very thick foaming white head that lasts forever. smells like belgian yeast, a touch of wildflower honey, light wheat malt, and sticky hops. flavor is close to the nose, although without the honey sweetness. more of a floral character presents itself, with mild spice and assertive hoppiness for the style. feel is nice too, more body than a duvel, not full or anything, but medium at least. nice carbonation lasts the whole glass. 10 bucks for a 10oz is too much money for this (at linger north denver), but it is a very very good beer.

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a delirium tremens snifter glass.

cork opens with a healthy pop... pours a pale, straw yellow with a tall, two finger creamy white head... some haze to the body; decent retention, lacing.

smells is good, fairly typical of BSPAs with a strong fruit presence (apple, pear, grape, a bit of lemon zest), some belgian yeast and a bit of spice. flavor follows through nicely with an increased showing of spice and a few peppery notes. really flavorful and tasty; great balance between the fruits, spices, and belgian yeast.

light to medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. easily one of the better belgian pales i've come across. very enjoyable.
