Pours a hazy golden yellow with a frothy inch and a half ivory head that lingers.
Belgian yeast, pear, tangerine, and mango form the initial aroma. There's an underlying confectioners sugar sweetness, along with coriander and a hint of wheat. Somewhat musty.
Flavor is fruity and sweet initially, but it dries out considerably at the finish. Pear, belgian yeast, green apple, pineapple, ginger, and coriander underlie a slightly sweet, light bready malt body, becoming peppery at the finish. Very delicate, but complex.
Body is moderate, creamy, with fairly high carbonation and significant alcohol warmth.
Very nice belgian yeast ester character, and an excellent balance of sweetness and dryness.
