4.58/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - This is a very appealing light golden orange in color and full of hazy goodness. The white head came up easy and left cool-looking pits along with the traditional Belgian lacing.

Smell - The big orange and coriander showed some terrific, mature depth that just screamed quality. There's also some very mild white pepper. The beauty of this nose is not a wanderous sense of complexity but is more about the aromatic depth of the ingredients.

Taste - The orange peel gains the upper hand at the taste. It's big and powerful, borderline medicinal, with an overabundance of coriander and pepper.

Mouthfeel - This is full-bodied with some brilliant, boisterous carbonation and a hopping bitter middle. The finish is curt and satisfying.

Drinkability - This is in essence a suped up version of the standard BSPA and is a real heavy-hitter. It should be enjoyed on an empty stomach.

Update – I had the opportunity to try this again on New Year’s Eve weekend 2011 and it seemed to be better than my original tasting. Even then I enjoyed this immensely but now the head was incredible, white as snow and ultra puffy, the nose showed more complexity, and I got some light sweetish grapefruit at the taste that added the missing balance. Overall this went from a really good beer to a great beer and I upped a couple of my ratings a bit.

4.5/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear yellow with enormous head. High effervescence. No floaties.

S: The most intense, most distilled pine, resin, evergreen character i have ever gotten from a brew. Kind of overwhelms everything else, but being so organic and complex it hardly feels lacking.

T: Follows up on the nose with rich, beautiful and extremely evocative pine forest aromatics.

M: Medium low bitterness. Full bodied. Medium high carbonation. Finishes sweetish with a clove like aftertaste.

Overall: Such a treat of a beer. Unique profile and interpretation of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

4.19/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a stubby 11.2 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet. Features a big delicately bubbly white head that actually looks like thick froth because of the carbonation and excellent head retention. Has some frothy streaks of lacing on the glass. A good looking beer.

VEry good aroma as well, Kind of like a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with hops added. Starts of fwith some pale fruit...apples and pears, then the Mosaic hops kick in and the bitterness and tangerine/citrus aromas take over.

Taste is more of the same, starts out like a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with the yeast and light fruit, then the Mosaic hos.citrus flavor kick s in. The overall flavors appear light on the tongue with little to no alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel is light and smooth. No noticeable alcohol presents, Nice level of carbonation.

This is an outstanding brew. The addition of heavy duty hops in no way diminishes the "Belgian" characteristics of the beer. Very nicely done/

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color- clear light gold. Huge head with annoying meringue thickness.

Aroma- sharp hoppiness with evergreen notes.

Taste- Starts mild with Belgian spiced grape notes then turns dry and hoppy with a lingering clean hoppy finish. This is a Belgian for hop heads!

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted Jan. 2013.
