Nice flow into my glass resulting in a two finger head of dense off white, to very light yellow foam. Lace is a little broken, but has a good cling. Color is a 6 on the SRM beer color chart, with clear presentation and lots of micro bubbles. Smell is heavenly, with the almost overpowering aroma of peaches. There are also fragrances of melon, lime peel, and flowers. I wish the taste was a good as the smell, but it was a muted version, with flavors of peaches, slightly sour oranges...maybe tangelos, something in there is like Swiss cheese, and a whips of grapefruit. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, with a potent explosion of carbonation. There is a slight coating of sweet, sticky phlegm in the back of my throat, but it is sort of pleasing. Over all this was a great journey and the buzz is just what I needed. If I see the label again, I will most certainly put it in my shopping vessel.

4.06/5 rDev +6.8%

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: pours a clear straw color with slightly higher amount of carbonation, two finger head that dissipated quickly and left a thin layer of bubbles that lasted throughout, there was some lacing present.
SMELL: molasses, pears, banana and the Coriander spice really dominates with some Belgian funk.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose, it's initially sweet molasses with some spice and funky Belgian bread then some lingering hops, the alcohol 7.8% is perceptible but well disguised.
PALATE: full bodied with higher carbonation.
OVERALL: this is a very good beer and reasonably priced, it's not the best I've had for the style but for the price I would not hesitate to buy again.
