“The end of the world.” I poured this beer into a unibroue tulip I have enjoyed this beer in the past but never considered a review until now.

The first impression of this beer in a glass is that of a cross between a run-o-the-mill american pilsener and champagne. It froths like crazy and truly looks “refreshing.” But there is no cheap macro-swill here, this is high end stuff.

The initial smell is spicy, yeasty, somewhat belgian white, even more malt base to form the strong pale ale frame. The taste is predominantly vanilla, coriander malts and a bitterness to add balance from the hops. This is crucial because it balances the sweetness that would otherwise be over-present. One other thing that balances the sweetness is the alcohol content. At times it is present, and at other times it is not so up front. The finish is wonderfully spiced, dry herbal spiced, (coriander, some citrus oil not nutmeg and cinnamon) and vanilla. With a warming effect.

This is really nice in what it is trying to accomplish, its up there with Duvel, etc.; and is certainly less sweet than some of the Belgians. If beginners into craft beer could get by the high alcohol, this certainly is a beverage that could tease and convert the casual drinker to explore craft and Belgian beer.

Poured from 1 Pt 9.4 fl. oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Nice clean golden color;nice moderate lacing; one inch white soapy head...looked nice & clean and refeshing.

S - Yeast,floral,coriander,citrus(orange peel, lemon); no real booze smell, evenwith the high ABV

T - Citrus(Orange peel,lemon),yeast,malt,subtle spice,slightly sour finish, but not in an unpleasant way

M -high carbonation, was expecting a heavier feel, but was not dissapointed with the lighter mouthfeel

D - went down smooth, was quite refreshing, could be an all day/night beer if it wasn't for the high ABV. if you use it as a session beer, do not even look at a car....it goes down so nice that you can have too much without even knowing it!
