Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
A real nice thick and uniform off white head, almost creamy, huge retention and staying power with pinhead sized bubbles. Body color is slightly dull, but a real nice orb orange color slightly opaque also. Very slow rising carbonation which is hard to see.
Nose is a great mix of soft citrus fruit, and sweet zest. I get a good kumquat sensation off of this. Big sweet florals as well, almost like a ginger blossom. I really like this nose a lot. It smells very inviting.
Taste is an interesting mix. Milky sweetness body, cream, and matching a nice hop angle hinted from the nose of florals and grass also. Creamy body, with an almost thick egg like consistency. The beer is very dense in the palate, but it's not a boozy rush, until it hits your stomach. Real nice mellow lingering bitterness on this also.
Overall it strangely doesn't really remind me of a Belgian, it's sort of an odd strong ale hoppy beer from another planet, but I guess it does have "some" Belgian character to it, but it really feels like something very unique. Nice job, very memorable.
