Ahh-those Musketiers. Ale pours a thick, rich, cloudy orange. Unfiltered goodness. Beautiful
thick white foam head dissipating down to a thin layer of foam and leaving fantastic lacing.
Nose of pineapple, banana, citrus hops, Belgian candy sugar, and yeasty earthy goodness.
Taste has an excellent citrus hop flavor up front and on the sides. Pineapple and Belgian
candy interplay on the back with earthy sticky hop goodness and candy malts. Light alcohol
warmth on the back and smooth carbonated yet silky mouthfeel makes this one of the BEST
of the hopped Belgians I have yet to try. Would be a nice one to lay down for another couple
of years. Fantastic.

Cheers

Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a large pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some perfect lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit with some mango notes is quite nice. Taste is a great mix perfect some flora notes of tropical fruit and mango with fruity ester and a solid Belgian malt backbone. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer with great notes of Galaxy hops and a solid malt backbone which mix in very well.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: hazy amber with a big, thick white head, that's slowly dropping and leaving nice lacing on the glass

Aroma: huge, intense aroma - there's caramel, bread, pineapple, resin, flowers, pine... Everything!
Taste: sweet, fruity and citrusy. Also some toasty notes. Alcohol is present, but makes everything taste even better. Medium bitterness, could be higher I guess.

Mouthfeel: full bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall: this is a big beer. And not just because it's in a 750ml bottle (the bottle is superb, beautiful etc., I love it and I'm gonna keep it). I don't usually drink sweet IIPA's but this one is great, because there's so much more to it than just the sweetness. Highly recommended beer!

Poured a golden body with large head and foamy lace patches down glass. Aroma is a dirty, earthy hop menagerie mixed with yeast and touches of sweet, sugary goodness. Well carbonated so it has a sharp crispness and light mouthfeel but the yeast keeps it real smooth and the hops and malts give off not only citric, earthy tones but touches of tropical fruit sweetness.
