4.25/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Chimay glass

Appearance: bright caution light yellow, cloudy, one inch head, high carbonation

Smell: hay and honey

Taste: hay, honey, some funk, and a good dose of apple

Mouthfeel: funky, smooth, light body with high carbonation

Drinkability: A classic light and funky Belgian beer that hides the alcohol well. I could have several of these. Very pleasant to drink and complex. One of the best in the style and worth the money, I could have several.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a stemless wineglass golden yellow with a nice thick white head that stays around for a long time, the way a belgian should. Good amount of bubbles, but the carbonation isn't evident in the mouthfeel. Smell isn't as strong as I expected, but the normal spices are present. The taste is a nice spiced hop bite, but not too strong for a BSPA. It's very well balanced.

I was truly looking forward to tasting this beer and I will have to say I am disappointed. It has everything a true beer lover is looking for when you are rating it, however as a beer drinker, I can not say I am thrilled for one reason and one reason only: the aftertaste gave me the impression of synthetics; I immediately thought of perfume, which was odd. It tastes like a cross between a pilsner and a belgium witbier.

However, as far as presentation, absolutely crystal clear and beautiful head that would make anyone cry. It had a crisp and clean initial taste and is truly beautiful, which is why it still rated a 4.5 in my book.
