4.28/5  rDev +6.5%

A - Golden yellow and nearly transparent. Beautiful off-white head with great retention and lacing.

S - Bready and citrus, orange and grapefruit

T - Caramel base with strong spicy pine and grapefruit hops and tons of banana. Normally I am not a fan of the banana flavor that Belgian yeast imparts, but this is the most I've ever enjoyed. The high ABV and hops balance the flavor amazingly.

M - Crisp and clean with perfect carbonation. Very drinkable!

O - This is a new favorite. I'm not normally a fan of Belgians or Belgian/IPAs because of the yeast flavor profiles but the strong hops and dry hopping counterbalance this perfectly. I will definitely be enjoying this again.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into footed tulip.

A: Golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Plenty of spider web lacing.

S: Sourdough, paper, pine, coriander.

T: Hoppy bite, pale yeast, coriander, clove, oregano....

M: Crisp, yet syrupy. Pungent hop bite throughout.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really good. Nice head, plenty of lacing. Nose is Bready with some strong hops and Italian spice. Hoppy, yet yeasty with spice. Overall, this is a good quaff.
