Poured from a brown bottle featuring a sailing vessel on the label.

A: Thin, fizzy head. Dried apricot in color. Hazy.

S: Pie crusts. Cinnamon. Bananna. Clove. A touch of tangerine. Nutmeg.

T: Begins a little toasty. Gives way quickly to jucy fruits. Orange. Lemon. Pear. Apricot. White grapes. Segues into a spice. Some clove or allspice and a bit of pepper, but the spiciness is not overblown. Ends warming with lingering esters.

M: Effervescent carbonation. Nice body. Gives the feeling of being very light and almost like a wheat beer.

Overall: A very nice beer. Great balance of spice and esters combined with a great mouthfeel. Really easy drinker, this one. The flavor is quite bouyant and really evolves not only with each sip but as you finish the bottle. Unlike some beers that develop a flavor that builds to something unbearable by the time you finish, this beer has flavors that compound into some pretty sweet things by the end of the glass. Glad I have more than one bottle.

Well this is truley a great tasting Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
Color was a pale golden color with a slight haze. Nice thick frothy head that was developing like a cumulus cloud on a hot summer day. If you know what that looks like. The smell was just what I thought from this style beer. A fruity and floral like scent, a nice balance. Not overpowering very subtle and pleasant. Tatste was spicy at first with a slight citrus zing. A nice dry aftertaste rounds out this well balanced and not so overpowering beer. The ABV is powerfull but you cant taste it. Its an amazingly smooth beer.

A: Haz and golden-brown, with a frothy 2-finger head that dissipated quickly. A thin layer of head remains.
S: That classic yeasty belgian tripel smell. Some lemons and oranges.
T: Yeasty, light, and soft carbonation makes this beer extra tasty. Soft banana and orange fruit, with light citrus hops.
M: Thick, but the soft carbonation helps the beer to not be too coating and heavy. A touch of alcohol, but it's warm and soothing.
D: I could drink a whole 6 pack. Great stuff!
