Even at this point in the game, I am still leery when it's a Belgian ale. No offense to anyone out there. This carries that bready and yeasty character that I find is prevalent in a lot of American-produced Belgian ales. However, with this beer, it seems to work pretty well. It's consistent and the sweet edge works well in things. I can dig it. I'd tone it down and smooth it out, if it were up to me. But it ain't too shabby as it is.

crystal clear bright golden hue with a finger of sticky crystalic white head. Wonderful fruity and yeasty aromas on the nose. Banana and clove, apple and pear skins, hay. Very rustic and farm like.

Smooth creamy carbonation. Flavor isn't as intense as the nose but a very good beer. Sweet breads up front followed by dried apricots and pears. Tart apple flavor somewhere along the mid palate with a funky saison like expierence mixed in. Finishes dry with mild alcohol presence. A really awesome belgian style ale in a can. Wish I had this available to me at all times, would make a great summer sipper.
