Bottle shared by Jayhawk 73. Thanks Jeff. The beer is mildly hazy and dark straw yellow with a half inch of white head. Lasting retention with lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma brings Belgian yeast, fruity esters, oranges, citrus. A bit sweet with some forward alcohol notes. Oranges soaked in booze with Belgian yeast. Medium bodied and relatively smooth. Decent, though best in small quantities. A good bottle for sharing.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; Release 27, bottled 1/1/2012. Pours fairly cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big pear, apple, banana, grape, bread, clove, pepper, floral, candi sugar, grass, and herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity and spicy yeast esters. Taste of pear, apple, banana, grape, bread, clove, floral, pepper, grass, candi sugar, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, bread, floral, clove, candi sugar, grass, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters with malt sweetness; with zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly slick and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian golden ale. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

A delicate bodied Belgium strong ale of delicious golden colour with a rich and delightful flower aroma tasting of vanilla, light candied caramel, spicy hops and stronger malt, with a completely clean after-taste. Deceivingly drinkable. This an exceptional beer by any measure.
