App- Thick cloudy orange body, white snowy two-finger head.

Nose- Pear, a little citrus, wonderful spicy yeast, sourdough

Taste- Delicious flavor, bold yeast, sweet belgian candy, citrus fruits, fresh bread.

MF- Full and frothy, very wonderful, coats the mouth, liquid bread

Good beer, really wish the last two SB's I reviewed were this good.

Enjoyed in a chalice

A: pours a medium golden color with a slight haze and with a finger of pure white head that lingers nicely and is consistent of very fine bubbles, has a ton of carbonation bubbles on the glass and floating towards the top, leaves a nice amount of very thin lacing on the glass
S: scents of white grape juice and a slight wheat character
T: grapes in the beginning and then a bit of an interesting character towards the middle/end, not at all bad but i just cant place what it is, maybe pears, overall a real good tasting brew, really represents the style
M: intense on the carbonation kind of like seltzer, leaves the mouth very clean and altogether quickly
O: a really nice brew, represents the style to a tea, taste great, looks great, smells perfect, ive had this one and abt 12 and loved both so i think im gonna have to track down the rest

A- murky dark orange with a nice one finger head, mine actually has a bunch of little particles floating around in it.
S- Pineapple citrus up front, followed by belgian yeast and some breaddy notes, figs and raisins
T- Big dark fruit taste, lots of figs and raisons. plenty of carbonation to bring it to life. Sweet but its got a malty backbone to balance it out. Very slight bitter aftertaste but its less then enough to care.
M- Silky smooth textured beer with lots of carbonation. Easy to drink. a great beer to drink
O- Having just tried their Dubbel 6 and loved it, i had high expectations coming into this beer. It is better then the Dubbel 6. Another great offering by what I think is becoming one of my favorite breweries.
