Nice looking ale with the effervescent carbonation, nice color and wonderful head. The bottle says to carefully retain the yeast in the bottle, or to pour the yeast into the glass for a nuttier taste. I started by leaving the yeast in the bottle, and found this lead to a very pleasant crisp, slightly dry and slightly fruity (apples) taste. The carbonation and body enhanced the experience. Then I poured in the yeast. I would not say that it produced a nuttier taste. I would say the flavor was a bit more full, perhaps a bit spicier. Beyond that the flavor changed to something i can't describe accurately, I got stuck on the "nuttier taste" which I didn't agree with. Instead of determining how best to describe the taste change i kept trying to find the nutty taste. I couldn't find it and suddenly my glass was empty. This is in no way a knock on the beer. I enjoyed this both with and without yeast. This was a very solid belgian, simultaneously full flavored and somewhat light and refreshing.

I found this on the bottle list at Unos of all places. Poured into a pint glass (unfortunate I know) with a golden straw color with very visible carbonation and a single finger head which left decent lacing. The aroma is of yeast, fruit and spices with a flavor to match. The yeast comes through very strong in the flavor along with the spices and only hints of fruit. I greatly enjoyed this one and will be looking for it at my local bottle shop.
