4.25/5 rDev -1.6%
Served in a snifter, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch white head. The aroma isn't strong at all, but what I can smell is nice. Mostly there's just an overall fruity and sweet smell, along with some cloves, honey, pear and yeast. Luckily the taste is stronger, it tastes like fruit, cloves, pepper and honey. Mouthfeel is medium with a lot of carbonation, a little too much, but not enough that it takes away from the beer. The drinkability is still pretty good, it goes down easy and the alcohol isn't noticable at all. I think this is a pretty decent beer. The aroma wasn't strong, but the taste and overall drinkability made up for it. Recommended.

Ok.. I kept hearing a lot about this beer on this site... and low and behold.. it's a regular at a local Fred Meyer over my way... I am not a huge fan of Belgians as already this smells kind of like one... but I will try and be as fair as I possibly can... as you can see though my review on Stones Vertical Epic 08.08.08 was way low... I just had to pour it out... not for me. Best by Feb. 11th of 2010.
- Nice cloudy and bright yellow look... very unique from any other brew I have ever had. Great bubbly white head that diminished rather quickly to a haze of white bubbly lace.. none that looks like it will stick.. though presses the sides of my tumbler glass.
- A bready grainy scent... with a bit of oak and hardwood... and banana yeast... (oh no... not another Belgian... :-/) Some hops in there too.... bitter, pine...
- Impressed... makes me want to venture out to more Belgians.... Zesty lemon citrus up front... bready yeast.. strong balanced malt... so complex and balanced in flavor... I don't think I have had a brew that contains so many different avenues of flavor... kind of like Janice Joplins vocal range of highs and lows.... rather strong though... small tad bit of banana.. caramel... clear water... grain and barley.. but refreshingly warm.
- For some reason the mouthfeel reminds me of being an 18 yr. old dumbass who stayed up way too late and still fisting a bottle of Rainier Ale. Something I could drink myself sober with. A bit dry and lingers with all of the above flavors... even hops! Not oily but a bit of ester..
- Super drinkable for a Belgian... a beer and style all in its own though i think. More complex than the usual... and I can only compare this to the Stone Vertical that I tried and hated... but this is far better and actually might make me purchase a fine Belgian in the near future like this one. Doesn't hide its strength as well as a Ninkasi Tricerahops... but it is what it is!!

A delicate hand is required to pour this one. The billowy white head rests on the cloudy orange beer. The head leaves a nice lacing along the glass. It has a very floral and spicy smell. Some hints of alcohol and yeast are also noticeable in the aroma. The taste is complex, yet well balanced, consisting mostly of a spicy and sweet tones. The carbonation first tingles in the mouth then finishes off spicy. This is an interesting style that I always enjoy and always wish I had more.
