This blows the doors of a Westmalle dubel. There is so much going on with this one that it took me a bottle to figure it out. Pour it in a goblet and let it warm up a bit. It has high alcohol so you can sip it. It is full of yeasty, caramel sweetness but not so much sweetness as to be cloying. If is very well balanced with just enough bitterness. It is full flavored with fantastic mouth feel. (395 characters)

Pours languidly into a tumbler glass, hard to generate much of a head, but there was about an eighth of an inch there momentarily. Foam quickly subsides, leaving a thin ring around the edges, no lacing. Tawny amber orange color, somewhat hazy.

Bubblegum and clove aromas, kind of a stereotypical "Belgian" aroma.

Spicy flavors, big on the phenolics, lasting clove in the aftertaste, low level pepper bitterness. Viscous body, low carbonation. Not a fan of the mouthfeel, a bit slick and coating, needs more carbonation. Overall not a total waste, it's not deeply flawed, just not appealing to personal taste. However i'm not sure about finishing it.

Thanks for this one Eric! (681 characters)

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Greenbush Brewing Co., this one listed as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark burnt orange colored body with some nice sediment floating in the glass. Three fingers of beige foam for a head that falls to about a finger. Fat spotty lacing. For some reason, I thought it would be lighter in color, but it looks very nice.

S - Smell is comprised of the usual suspects - candied caramel maltiness, Belgian yeast, banana, clove, dough, pepper. A simple, yet pleasant aroma.

T - The taste follows the nose - candied sugars, caramel, green apple, pear, banana, white grape. Lots of lovely yeast derived fruitiness on this one. It's very nice, but I was hoping for more grassy / herbal flavors. No alcohol heat or burn; the 9.30% abv is extremely well hidden.

M - The feel is slightly heavy. Dry on the finish. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation. Some lingering fruitiness / stickiness on the palate. Very easy drinking for the high abv.

Overall, a nicely done but average representation of the style from Greenbush. Doesn't really bring anything new or exciting to the table, but it's certainly enjoyable and very drinkable.
