3.81/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
22 ox bottle was poured into a large tulip glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin puffy layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank too.
Smell: Sweet pale and bready malts, vanilla, spices, a little booze, and Belgian candy.
Taste: Pear, apples, vanilla, booze, spices, yeasty esters, a little apple and pear, sweet candy, and pale and bready malts.
Mouthfeel: A little dry, a little chewy, mild tingly hops, medium bodied, sweet, warming alcohol, and medium carbonation.
Overall: A good take on the style, but seemed to be a tad sweeter than most. I still enjoyed the beer and would grab another anytime.

4.48/5 rDev +17%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Pours dark gold in color. Streams of carbonation rush to the top of the glass. Inch of frothy white head that dissipates quickly but thin layer of head is retained for the length of the drink. Clear, no sediment. Looks delectable!
Smell: Sweet malts, caramelly. Hard to distinguish hop aroma. Distinctly belgian yeast; slightly funky, sweet and strong.
Taste: Sweet, slightly fruity (green apples?). Funky/musty taste characteristic of belgian yeast shines through but balanced well by the sweetness. Dangerously smooth for it’s strength.
Mouthfeel: Complex flavors lend to a full body, but the malts maintain lightness. Smooth start to finish. Medium carbonation. Alcohol taste lingers on the top of the mouth.
Overall: I’ve enjoyed this beer more times than I can count, on tap or bottled. It’s always a favorite, never disappointed. Accurate as a Belgian golden, but never boring for the palate!
