look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
