3.3/5  rDev -16%
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).

4.45/5  rDev +13.2%
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.

3.31/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

3.74/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Big soapy white head on top of a clear pale golden yellow beer with lots of fine bubbles. Settles to a cap, gives steady soapy lace. Looks quite good.

Juicy nose, sweet grapes and apples, just a hint of all that alcohol. Just as juicy to taste, borderline sweet, slightly drying to finish. Tons of sparkle from sharp carbonation, gives it a bit of a bite. Comes across somewhere between champagne and cider.

The beer takes some muscle from all the alcohol in it. Overall a decent enough quaff, but could hurt you if you do more than one or two.
