4.2/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A - Frothy white head. Golden straw colored with a million tiny bubbles racing to the top.
S - Spicy, sweet, yeastie and a little fruity. I really have a hard time describing the smell of Belgians.
T - First sip is has a spicy sweetness up front. I'd try and pick out the fruit tastes but I just can't so I'll leave it at that. In the middle there's a nice sweet maltiness and some hop bitterness to round things out nicely. I've had other Belgians that were just over the top in that yeastie profile - this one isn't. Everything seems to be balanced.
M - It's like a champagne. That's the best I can describe it. Refreshing with a somewhat tart and crisp finish. Not overly dry - just right on the mouthfeel. I actually think it's probably one of the better 'light' beers I've tried in respect to mouthfeel.
D - Each Belgian I try gets better and better with this one being the best. It could be I've grown accustomed to the taste or I just keep picking better beers. I'd like to think with this one, the latter holds true. Careful with this one - it doesn't have the heavy feeling of a 8.5% ABV beer. You could easily get hammered on this one without even knowing it. I'd definitely buy this again.
