look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Aroma - Pilsen grainy notes than the Belgian yeast character takes over with spice and fruitiness.

Appearance - Straw yellow pale with a lot of carbonation and a fluffy white head

Taste - Dry finish with a Belgian spice character that makes up most of the flavor profile. Carbonation plays a role in flavor too. No real hint of alcohol.

Notes - The definitive Belgian Golden Strong Ale

A: Pours a golden yellow. Nice two finger head with good retention.

S: Begliany. Spiciness and banana and bubble gum. Some bread notes as well.

T: Spice and Bubble gum. I get these notes a lot with belgian pales. There is some bread character as well.

M: Crisp. I have just always thought this beer has way to much carbonation and that takes away from the smoothness.

O: A good beer. Not my favorite style but definetely worth a go.
