Paid $5.49 for a 12oz bottle from BevMo in San Jose, CA. Poured into my Chimay Chalice to review.

Light and fizzy white head of about an inch consistent of very large bubbles. Quite carbonated. Small floaters present; pour it slowly! A small frothy layer of head retention. Very cloudy golden straw yellow in color.

Nose is quite pale, with yeast, bread, Belgian Spice and banana dominating. Getting other spice note such as white pepper and mild clove. Biscuity malt and grassy hop help to balance and mellow everything out.

This is one of those beers that tastes even better than my nose predicted. Similar in characteristic to the nose, yet even better brought together and enjoyable.

Excellent mouthfeel. Creamy and medium bodied. Crisp and well carbonated, it has an almost invigorating feel. Somewhat dry on the close.

I tend to not be a fan of the style, so the fact that I enjoyed this one truly means it is among the best in its class.
