Like others of this style, this is a wonderful, easy drinking brew that is really quite grand.

It looks right for the style and has an appropriate aroma, though perhaps muted. The taste is maybe a little less understated than a Duuvel which is nice in the beginning but later tires. It has all that yeasty goodness going on with hops hidden by all that. Of course is all hides a lot of alcohol amazingly well.

This is a wonderfully decadent ale. It would be nice to do a serious session of these drinking a whole bottle of four or so varieties. Alcohol daydream. Great brew - highly recommended.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Belgian goblet.

A - 4.25 - Medium straw color. First pour is clear, later ones hazy with sediment. Head thick, fluffy and mousse-like. Very sticky lacing.

S - 4.5 - Inviting mix of sweet, simple malt and complex yeast. Notes of bubblegum and very faint musty barnyard.

T - 4.5 - Clean, bready malt. Light touch of noble hops. Strong yeast notes of bubblegum, spices and very faint horseblanket.. Fairly dry finish.

M - 4.0 - Light to medium body. Medium hops bitterness. Strong alcohol burn verging on boozy. Full, prickly carbonation.

O - 4.5 - A great example of the style. Clean and subtle, yet with strong alcohol and a bit of barnyard funk in the background. Well done!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color capped by a couple of inches of foam which display real staying power and leave a fair amount of lace

Smell: Very fruity, with stone fruit, grapefruit and a hint of banana

Taste: Fruity, with with stone fruit and banana and a very floral citrus tone that builds in the middle; yeasty and spicy, after the swallow; clean finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Really like this beer; verges on Belgian IPA territory but not overly hoppy

12 oz bottle -- bottled on date 31 May 2014 -- served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours pale amber in color; cloudy with a small head that soon dies down ro a ring but leaves decent lacing. Full pour still left some sediment on the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: mainly fruity with hints of apricots and oranges. Some alcohol esters.

Flavor: Largely follows the aroma: Lightly spicy and moderately fruity, with a relatively high hop load. There's only a very mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

Feel: light-medium body and crisp, medium high carbonation. Dry finish.

O: a very good version of the style with high but very well-hidden ABV.
