4.5/5 rDev +17.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A- Poured into a beer clean tulip from the 22oz bomber, a thick rocky white head develops. The head has nice retention and after about 5 minutes, settled into a thin cap, leaving behind ample lacing. The body is light orange and slightly hazy.
S- Oh man... fresh apricot, peach and peach pit, nutmeg, all spice, a touch of must.
T- Starts out with peach, pear, apricot and some dark fruit and woody undertones. The finish reminds me of brandy and is driven by characteristic styrian golden hops.
M- Thick on the palette for sure but silky.
O- Great beer. I'm glad I popped this at 10am; a great start to the day.

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!
