Pours a pale, murky straw color with a huge foamy white head. Dissipates after a couple minutes, leaving a thin layer and a small amount of lacing.

Aroma smells of strong lemon rind and orange peel, along with yeast and a bit of spices. A bit of grassiness.

Taste is very complex. A bit of booze with some light caramel malt. Lots of bready malts and yeast. Definitely some green apple bitterness.

Medium bodied. Decent carbonation. Pretty easy drinker.

Overall, this complex palate makes it a beer well worth trying, and drinkability like this at 8.5% isn't easy to come across.

Poured a light orange with overflowing head about 4in. That was my fault on the head, but was poured into a Belgian Ale Glass, tastes a carbonated grapefruit and citrus upfront with an alcohol end. Super solid and citrus-y. Fairly light but a great complex beer!

A great Belgian with what i can best describe as champagne like quality's. A great beer for almost any palate. Biggest gripe... it's obnoxiously expensive!!
