I'm going to rewiev this one side by side with the Satan Red, both poured in Orval Chalices and both classified as BSPA at 8.00% ABV. Here we go:
A: Pours clear golden with strong rich small bubbles. The tall head is crystal white and quite creamy. Rich lacings. Looks way better than the Red.
S: Yeast and spice, kind of acidic Semi-sweet malt. Fruity; mainly citric notes. Smell is stronger than in the red one.
T: Sour, yeast and spices. Sweetness, but rather mild, from the malt. Almost dry and acidic; green apples, citric notes. Much drier and more acidic than the red.
M: Aftertaste is very long and sour. Body is on the medium side and carbonation is low.
O: Nice and sour. It lacked a little complexity in the taste compared to the smell and look. Not bad but it would probably have gotten a better grade if not compared side by side with the more complex-tasting red one.

3.28/5 rDev -8.6%
Thanks to NewBrewBB for the opportunity to try this beer. 750ml bottled served in a tulip. Pours an orange-gold hue with a hazy clarity. Head is one inch, bright white and eventually dissipates into a bubbly froth. Some textured swaths and slashes of lacing present during the tasting. Nose expresses candi sugar, lightly herbal/grassy notes and a suggestion of Belgian yeast. Taste is dull and herbal; almost a little vegetal. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a lively, almost coarse carbonation. Overall, not bad, but there are much better examples of the style out there.
