4.15/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into my Sam Adams sensory glass, because that is my only glass with some what of a lip (I need to get some large wine glasses or goblets).
Wow, the head is nice and fluffy. Leaves amazing lacing. So far so good. Color is a light orange/hint of gold.
Well first off, the smell. I did not expect the amount of hop aroma is this beer had (however I didn't know it was a SPA). Awesome. Big pine/floral smell. The taste, now is fruity, but hoppy at the same time. A tarty fruit that is.
Mouthfeel is very bitter and the taste of alcohol is only present after in lingers around long enough (pretty good for a 9% abv) Carbonation level is low but leaves a crisp taste in mouth.
Overall, nothing wrong with this beer at all. I underestimated it a lot, because I am not the biggest fan of Belgium beers, but this beer has just changed my mind. A beer I would highly recommend!

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!
