This is a re-review... I totally admit I did not appreciate the complexities of Belgian beers when I began rating beers on this site almost a year ago. My original review sounds borderline silly at this point and must be replaced. Here is a fresh review for a beer I am excited to try again with my newly formed appreciation for Belgian beers..
About as bright of a golden beer as I've seen. Perfect clarity and lots of active carbonation. The head is almost two fingers thick in a wide mouth wine glass...so that's rather hearty.. Pretty nice retention and a good amount of lacing stuck on the inside of the glass..
Aroma is bright, fresh... light malts..a bit of clove and a sense of the yeast. Some fruit notes, but nothing I can specifically point out... Maybe peach or white grape.
Very nice....I had a feeling I would enjoy this now... it's not nutty, but I get a sense of almond.. Juicy fruit gum? Really delicate . Some nice layered malt tones behind the fruit.. Very light and crisp.. Towards the end there is a nice subtle but definite lingering hop effect. This is very nice combined with the crisp nature. Some spice tones, but nothing is overpowering..
Body is feather light but with lots of flavor. The carbonation bursts the flavors into your mouth... This hides the 8.5% ABV very well...
Very drinkable... Could be scary on a warm summer afternoon..

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
