A: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a creamy, thin white head.

S: Gentle aromas of caramel, grass, tobacco, herbs, lemon, apricot, white peach, spices, and oranges in syrup flit across the nose.

T: Delicate, layered notes of apricot, oranges in syrup, lemon, white peach, pear, herbs, spices, grass, minerals, biscuits, candy sugar, tobacco, and caramel fill the mouth. The finish is earthy and surprisingly pungent, showcasing pronounced notes of tobacco, lemon, herbs, spices, and grass.

M: Full-bodied and slick. Carbonation is active, yet delicate. Alcohol is very restrained.

O: A very flavorful, balanced, and authentic Belgian-style strong pale ale. I have no clue why I waited so long to try this one.

Poured into a snifter.

This is a true golden ale -- the appearance is a deep golden color, with a decent two fingers of off-white head. There is a pretty large amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, that populates the glass in a minor way. Unfortunately some big chunks found their way into the glass near the end of the pour. The smell is of baking spices, booze, vanilla extract, dried apricot, washed potato, pear, molasses and brown sugar. The taste follows with nutmeg, clove, vanilla, peach, booze, dried figs, sweet apple, and potato skin. The mouthfeel compliments the spice character with its vibrant carbonation.

Overall, a very solid belgian-style golden that is a bit too spicy and boozy for its own good. Some age could probably mellow this one out, and hopefully bring out some of the more subtle fruit notes lurking below the surface of the more assertive characters in this beer.
