look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Slightly cloudy, amber straw colour. Full inch of fine white head that lasted to the end. The bottom of the large wine glass was full of foam at the end. Great lacing.

The aroma was mild at first and increased as the beer warmed. Full of Belgian yeast smell. Sweetbread and hay bitterness.

The taste was creamy with a sweetness throughout. Very spicy ... cinnamon. Some thyme leading to a bitter hay aftertaste.

A smooth but crisp feel.

A strong but smooth pale ale that is a balance of sweetness, spiciness and herbs.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Date on label is 29/06/2012.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge gushing six finger white head that slowly fades into a thinner layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty, fruity, and grainy Belgian aroma with a nice dose of spice. Belgian yeast upfront with some funk, cloves, and white peppers. Slight hint of coriander. Fruity hints of banana, apple, grapes, and pear. Big zesty citrus hints of orange, lemon, and slight apricot. Bready pale malt presence with hints of grains, straw, and crackers. Some earthy and grassy hops in the background. A very nice zesty aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a yeast driven Belgian taste with lots of zesty fruit notes. Belgian yeast upfront with some farmhouse funk along with notes of clove, white peppers, and coriander. Mix of fruit esters including notes of banana, white grapes, apple, and pear. Big citrus taste with some orange peel, lemon zest, and apricot. Bready malt presence with notes of grains, straw, and crackers. Earthy hops provide some drying bitterness in the finish. A very good Belgian taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, spicy, and juicy. Drying finish. Alcohol is masked well.

Overall: A very good Belgian ale. Great zesty citrus fruit taste along with the yeast and balancing hop presence.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Cloudy dirty straw color with a matted look in the glass. Pillowed bright white head with a fluffy appearance and medium retention.

Banana oil, white pepper, lemon and orange zest. A light dank quality from the hops.

A little skunky and an artificial feel on the palate. Artificial citrus zest, and a chemical alcoholic heat. A little bit of mint in the finish.

Rich, full bodied style with a slightly oily mouthfeel. The alcohol accentuates an astringent bitterness in the feel. The palate feels a little tacky after the beer has subsided. There's a spritzy carbonation here.

A little less carbonation would probably help out quite a bit. Fairly non-nondescript and alcoholic (taking into account the style).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Thin, lacey head that dissipates quickly. Hazy straw-gold color.

S - Yeasty, sour-tart smell. Typical of the style.

T - Citrusy start and distinct hoppy notes. Alcohol warmth with a lightly sweet malt finish.

M - Finely carbonated, almost champagne like mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol warmth.

Not as overly spiced or citrus heavy as other Belgian beers. The alcohol is hidden well and it is surprising light for its ABV. It would be a great session beer if the ABV were lower. Very refreshing grand cru.

A : pours a slightly hazy deep straw yellow with a big pillowy white head that dissipates quickly.
S : smells of cloves and Belgian yeast. A sharp alcohol burn to the nostrils. A bit of old skunk as well.
T : watery, then bready with hints of black pepper and clove. Banana essence and estery flavor. A mild hop bitterness of earthiness and grass. A bit of skunky euro pils taste.

M: thin up front, medium elsewhere. Just a hint of alcohol and a bit overly effervescent

An ok brew, but nothing i would seek out again.
