Poured into a goblet to see a slightly hazy, medium gold brew topped with a thick bubbly head that seems to stick around forever, giving me lots of time to sniff at it. I'm picking up some clove-like spice, a bit of fruit, and the classic Belgian yeast. The first thing I notice after sipping on this is the smooth, creamy mouthfeel, though the carbonation is still there to tickle your tongue as the flavour gets ready to overwhelm it. Let's see here... apple, clove, yeast, banana, maybe some orange, and probably some other stuff I can't figure out. Unfortunately the 8% ABV comes through just a bit too much for me, though a year or two in the cellar would likely round that out.
Overall a tasty beer but I'm still gonna stick with my Fin du Monde.

Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
