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

750ml brown bottle, corked and caged. Bottled on date on the label.

LOOK: Hazed pale amber with a chunky dense head that has no intention of moving.

SMELL: Dusty yeast, faint mace, red bell peppers, crackers, green apple taffy, chocolate mint

TASTE: Crisp snap, smooth, spicy, yeasty, dried grass, slight alcoholic ester, mild medicinal herb, bready, dried apples, dry finish

Just enough depth to keep me thinking and wanting another sip, seems like a new adventure with each sip as well. The dryness draws me in as well and the after taste is something to admire.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Picked up at the brewer a couple weeks ago, shared with rudzud and other friends.

Light fizzy head leaves nice lacing, bright orange red color nice bubbles.

Nose nice spicy hops, floral, nice Belgian yeast character with mild esters and spices, mild yeasty, hint citrus and grassy, fruity.

Taste starts with lots of Belgian characters, yeasty bready, little esters and Belgian yeast spices, nice amber reddish malt, light candy caramel character, little sweet and sticky. Hops are mostly spicy and chewy, little floral, hint fruity but that's more from the esters. Mild grassy flavors, little straw and lemongrass. Fair bitterness to start, then ends drier with lots of bitterness, spicy hop, little Belgian yeast spices, little sticky, light candy malt.

Mouth is med bod, lighter carb.

Overall interesting, nice Belgian characters but the hops get a little overbearing and spicy.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a tulip a clear golden hue with almost no head. Average appearance.

S - Aromas of Belgian yeast esters, light floral fruit notes, really pops with nice drive notes. Super aromatic.

T - Taste is nice, not as good as the nose. Belgian notes, light spice, esters, fruit notes, apples, faint alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is nice and light, clean.

O - Overall I enjoyed this offering. It was very straight forward.
