Best before 03/2014. Poured into oversized tulip glass.

A - Giant pillowy white rocky head. Hazy golden with many CO2 bubbles releasing from solution.

S - Spicy and wonderful fruity yeast esters are exceedingly complex. Lemony hops. Touch of soft alcohol. Delicate toasty malt otherwise no other malt smells coming through. A little bit of tartness. No Brett characteristics.

T - Green apple skin, candy sugar doesn't leave a syrupy sweet cloying flavor. Alcohol shines through, could mellow with some aging.

M - Light to medium bodied. Moderate to high carbonation makes for a crisp finish. Dry finish with alcohol warming but not as much as the 8.5% would believe you to think.

O - My Second Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Very nice yeast characteristics. Not hop forward like APA, really its own beast. Well enjoyed

Poured from a 11.2oz bottle into a tulip. Light, hazy straw color with a 2 finger foamy head with nice lacing. Head stayed around for most of the session. Citrus aroma. Nice strong ale mouthfeel. Fruity taste with bread & yeast characteristics. Also peppery notes in the aftertaste. Overall excellent beer. Lives up to its reputation.
