Served in a Karmeliet tulip glass.
A - A very pretty beer. Pours up a medium frothy head with little lacing. A gorgeous honey gold color. It literally looks like honey through the glass.
S - Slight wheat and oats. Hops make a very subtle presence. Not a potent odor, but quite pleasant.
T - Interesting. A slight honey taste with a malty finish. A bit of flowery character. A mild bitter aftertaste. It is good, not great though. Alcohol is detectable, but not powerful.
M - At first I thought it was too highly carbonated and frothed up in my mouth intensely, acting astringently on my tongue. But after a few minutes, it died down a lot and revealed a smooth thin drink that is very refreshing. Still a bit frothy though.
D - I can't put my finger on it. There is something amazing about this beer. I keep wanting it. Looking at what I said, I agree with all with all of it, and it seems complete. Yet somehow there is something left out. This beer is excellent, and the rating doesn't do it justice. I know this beer it good, but it is also not the best I've had, yet I have a feeling that in the future, I would choose it over many beers I've rated higher.

Beauty incarnate. Light and bubbly on the tough, light and bubbly in a snifter. Smells of banana, clove, biscuit, and a pleasant time about to come. Holds a steady stream of carbonation from first pour to last sip. A sneaky little bugger, too; you'd never guess it's 9.0 abv by smell or taste.
And you can find it at Costco, too, at least in Michigan. Never would have thought, but never more appreciative.
