A tongue tingler! I don't say that about many other beers. In fact I don't think I've ever said a beer made my tongue tingle. I don't know if that's a ringing endorsement, but in this case it's a good thing!
A - Golden body with a strong off-white head. Nice looking ale.
S - Not a huge nose. A little citrusy, a little spicy. But it's all very subtle.
T - A whole bunch of citrusy flavors. Hard to describe really.
M - A tongue tingler as I mentioned above. The after taste is one of the most pleasant I've experienced!
D - Good and tasty. I'm not familiar enough with the Belgain Strong Ale style to say if this is an authentic rendition, but regardless it's damn good!

Pours a bright golden orange that is pleasingly cloudy with a good one-inch beige head that is super creamy but eventually settles to a film. Okay retention; good sloppy lacing.
Orange creamsicle with a big yeast smell and spicy phenols.
Crisp and dry. Lots of bitter orange and a yeasty backbone. Some rich hop flavors rise at the end and take a while to leave you. All-in-all, very tasty.
Crisp and almost-chewy. Medium body and creamy carbonation.
I was not expecting much from a Belgian Style, but this is quite good. First, it is not filtered (like other "Belgian" beers I have had from Avery) and is quite nice to look at. Second the smell and taste are pretty in sync, giving a good profile of the yeast with a lot of good hops at the finish. The yeast gets a little chalky as you work your way through it, but other than that, it is quite good.
Would have again; worth trying if you're around it.
