A- Hazed orange amber with white head and a solid lacing.

A- Sweet belgian spice. Cloves. Citrus hops.

T- Smooth belgian flavor with slightly sour fruit hoppiness. Thick belgian sweetness with a bitterness throughout and in the finish.

M- Medium body and medium-high carbonation.

D- Quite a tasty beverage. I was expecting something a bit funkier, but enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured clear (no sediment added) with a large tan head that had moderate retention.

Smell: Lots of citrus from the hops with sweet fruits tossed in (Belgian yeast?).

Taste: The ample hop load is not overdone, as feared ("American Imperial IPA"), allowing clove, other spices and fruits from the tripel to contribute.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body; Medium carbonation; a bit too harsh and astringent.

O: This mix of styles was better than expected, and is done well enough that they don't just clash. Still, it lacks the fine amalgamation found in, for instance a Chouffe Belgian IPA.

Smells of spicy, floral hops with tons of citrus zest--not much actual fruit but very very zesty. Maybe some lemon or lime. Very spicy aroma, yum.

Taste has lots of zest too, spicy and floral hops again, but also some dank grassy hops, and a moderate maltiness that wasn't in the nose at all. Not quite as good as the. Owe but very tasty.

Pretty well carbonated feel, fairly refreshing and drinkable, body is a little thick and syrupy though.

Yum!
