BBD 7/16. Clear very light amber pour (pale gold). Superb head, lacing and retention. Wonderful nose of spicy Belgian yeast, banana, sweet fruit (pear with hints of orange) and subtle biscuit. Light medium body, yet nice and slick. Heavily carbonated with rich effervescent rushes throughout the profile. The flavor profile is of normal intensity, complex and balanced. The 8.5% alcohol is perfectly hidden. It begins with the fruit flavors, then flows into a light biscuit sweetness. In the middle, an effervescent light hop bitterness emerges coupled with a light note of pepper. The finish is rather clean, somewhat dry and a light bitterness lingers a bit over a blend of the previous flavors while notes of clove come to the forefront. World Class and one of the highest scores I've ever given.

Pours a cloudy brown with a thin head that trails the glass. Smells of banana and wheat while having a good amount of hops on the back end. The taste is sweet in the beginning and then transfers to more earthy tones, before a crisp finish that leaves you wanting more. A must try for me.
