A: opaque brown, with off-white foam, thick and lasting
S: belgian yeasty, yogurty, banana-cloves
T: fruity with banana, black pepper spicy, belgian phenol (bitter>), as my tongue got used to it i sense vanilla and oakiness very strongly
M: very spiritzy with carbonation (nice) and finishes dry

Overall, it's a nice sipper. i really like this oaky character.

330ml bottle into a goblet.

Pours a slightly hazy dark brown although I did let a bit of sediment slip into the glass. Solid one finger off-white head with very good head retention. Lacing was just so-so.

Aroma is extremely fruity, even more so than other BPA's I have had. There is almost a tropical character to it but quite a bit of cherry thrown in. Also some peach and peppery spice. Quite nice.

The flavor carries over the fruitiness from the aroma with peach and cherry along with quite a bit of pepper and coriander. Nice bready malt in the background that plays nicely with the fruit. Very dry mouthfeel with abundant prickly carbonation.

Overall, this is a very good BPA although it fall a bit short of being outstanding. I love the fruitiness but the malt could be turned up a bit. All in all, though, a good beer.
