Pours a hazy, straw/gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of grapes, tartness, hint of hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of sugar. Fits the style of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp, crisp, and an average carbonation level. There is also a tartness and slight dryness present. Tastes of grapes, tartness, slight pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, good tartness, decent body, and mostly dominated by grape flavors.

Pours a cloudy dull gold color into my Chimay chalice. Lots of floaties add to the cloudiness. The delicately bubbly white head is small and fades fast. Smell is pretty good....Belgian yeast, light fruit and pepper. Taste is similar. I have a bad habit of not waiting for the beer to warm up before sampling. In this case, I missed out on the yeast flavor (some Tripels and other Belgian beers that I like have an almost cheese like aroma and flavor from Belgian yeast).

When the beer was warmer, this very welcome flavor became apparent. In the meantime the apples and pears, slight hops bitterness and touch of pepper took care of the first half of the bottle. The other flavor that kicked in towards the end was a little sourness. This provides a nice counterbalance to the fruit sweetness.

Mouthfeel is rich like a Belgian should be. Alcohol presence is minimal despite the 9.8% abv. Complexity makes this interesting.

Well worth a try.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a cloudy light golden amber with lots of white floating particles. Fine two finger white head with good retention, lots of carbonation and lacing. Aroma of light fruit, Belgian yeast, coriander with light bready malt, slightly vinous and sour. Flavor is interesting, starting with sweet fruit juices and Belgian yeast and spices, then changing to a dryer, slightly sour and wine like finish, but with some light sweetness residual at the back of the tongue. Body is medium with nice creaminess. Warming. A very nice Belgian with a very interesting flavor progression. I will get this again.

On tap at the Hudson St. Stackhouse.

The beer pours a slightly hazy, gold color with great head retention and considerable lacing. The is attractive, but a bit reticent. I get some light honey and clove, but with some underlying nutmeg and light sour. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but seemed better, with the sweet honey and vanilla dominating the light sour. There's some cherry, candy orange slice and grape in the flavor profile as well. Still, the light sour really helps the mouthfeel, as the beer is light on its feet for a 9.8% beer, and drinkability is exceptional. The beer is fairly sweet, but there's enough light sour to counter it, and keep the beer from becoming heavy or cloying on the palate.

Nice beer, no doubt....
