Smoky, lingering notes on the nose. Great drinking beer. Rich amber/brown color. Smooth and creamy but plenty of flavors in there to keep you busy guessing. At 9.3% ABV, it could be a dayender or a nice launch for the evening... 2nd bottle even better.

Reviewer's note: goes very well with an aged cheddar! Love the rich caramel brown color, too.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, candi sugar, clove, pepper, bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and balanced malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, candi sugar, clove, pepper, bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, clove, bubblegum, and herbal/yeast earthiness on finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of fruity/earthy yeast with balanced bready/candi sugar malt sweetness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong golden ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready/candi sugar malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

A - Pours a golden brown with good clarity and carbonation. Nice off white fluffy head leaving nice lacing and spots on the glass. Good retention.

S - Belgian yeast, bread grain, caramel, butterscotch.

T - Very grainy and bready - a bit overpowering on the yeast. Grassy. Some malts come through and warms slightly in the after burn.

O - It was a meh brew and I will not be coming back.
