A bit unusual in the flavor profile, but I liked it quite a bit. Poured a slightly hazy golden peach with brisk carbonation. Sharp and peppery, with a touch of acidity and brineyness, like green olive brine. A bit of fruity yeast balanced the brine, and smoothed things out for the finish. Very engaging.

A-pours a golden hay color with a respectable head, solid two fingers at least. lots of yeast solids floating about, still clear otherwise.

S-trappist funkiness, subliminal spiciness bombards my nose. slight old banana bread notes in there as well.

T-Complex and deceptive. Occasionally the alcohol reminds you its there, but mostly it is masked by the perfectly balanced malt and hop profile. The Belgian yeast really shines through on this one, gloriously engaging both the nose and taste buds each sip. Mildly sweet, funky, yet not very bitter. I'm sure the hops must be there though to balance the high gravity of this brew.

M-Smooth and silky. This brew coats the entire mouth and really feels nice. You could even possibly extend this to include "throatfeel", because the smoothness really continues even after each swallow.

D-Like all big belgian pales, this is way too drinkable. I want a sixer, and I want to drink this classy beer in the most unclassy way possible.

Very attractive deep golden color with a fluffy and light head that is quite ample even with a gentle pour. Nice aroma of lemon zest, coriander and yeasty, bready sweetness. Taste is nice and sweet up front with plenty of spice notes. A little bit of clove, some black pepper, coriander, maybe some ginger and a citrus sing. I can detect the alcohol, but it actually adds to the taste rather than detracting. Nice dry finish. Very balanced and a wonderful tasting brew. Medium body with a surprisingly smooth drinkability. I would imagine I could through back a few of these, which is a dangerous proposition.
