The beer offers heavy Belgian yeast, breadiness, a bright orange, and spicy quality.

The flavor hits of heavy yeast quality with some banana, clove and more spice. A clean quality with some sweetness hiding the alcohol. A medium plus phenolic quality hits at the end as the beer dries out.

12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, golden orange/copper color with a finger and a half of white-colored head that dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with strong notes of bready, toasted malt, imparting aromas of English muffins and French baguettes, followed by some pineapple-like citrus, candied sugar, Belgian yeast funkiness, spices like black pepper, coriander, saffron, ginger and a touch of floral, piney hops.

Taste: Damn good! Lots of bready toasted malt up front, followed by some candied sugar-like sweetness, citrus such as pineapple and orange, spices such as black pepper, coriander, ginger and a touch of saffron, Belgian yeast, and finished with some floral, piney, grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation. With an ABV of 9.0%, this beer is very deceptive as there is very little, line none what-so-ever, alcohol on the palate. The alcohol is incredibly well masked.

Overall: This is an excellent Belgian-style golden ale. Highly recommended.

I had this beer on-tap in a tulip at the Brave Horse Tavern in Seattle.

Appearance: nice, smooth golden hue with a light haze and a finger of frothy ivory foam leaving a little lace on the glass. Not bad.

Smell: sweet, lightly malty and wiht a green, springy hop character. Light and fluffy; I like it.

Taste: quite malty and sweet, getting close to tripel territory here. Those same notes of green, grassy and springy come through from the aroma. There's not a strong alcohol heat, which helps the balance; overall I quite like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body but with a big carbonation and a very, very nice creaminess. Wonderful.

Overall: a very nice BSPA, almost bordering on a hoppy tripel. I am down with this beer.

Mild floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Taste is a nice light hop with a yeasty backbone. Very light for a 9% abv beer. Definitely pick one up if you can

On tap at the brewpub, light yellow pour, nice fruity Belgian spice, dry light bitter finish.

Taste is very complex and interesting. Hints of dryness but with a silky smooth sweetness and a surprisingly medium full body perception. Alcohol is well hidden. "Funk" is subtle and adds more complexity than actual assertive flavors. A joy to sip on, my only wish is that is was a little lighter in mouthfeel and more digestible.
