Pours a golden color with white, one finger head. Head has great retention and leaves lacing down the glass.

Light fruit, peachy aroma meshes with belgian yeast, spices, and sugary malt.

Belgian spices and yeast overpowers any sort of fruit aroma. There is also a surprisingly hoppy finish that leaves a slightly bitter, pleasant aftertaste.

Medium bodied with ample, creamy carbonation.

Overall, not a bad take on the style, but not my favorite either.

wow, buttery colored and fluffy headed salvation looks tempting! smells of butterscotch and over ripe peaches. also that classic belgian yeast. tastes a bit fruity, again the peaches, and there is a unique sweetness that works well here. it could be more carbonated, which would give it a lighter/brighter feeling in the mouth, but the lack of super carbonation makes the flavors stand out distinctly. this is a fantastic series of beers from avery, and along with the reverend are in my opion the two best brews they make. really different for a belgian pale

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

poured from 18oz bottle into a NB globe glass.

Appearance: pours a clear golden yellow with a slight hazy. Has a film of head towards the middle as it faded from a wide finger and a half of white head.

Smells: there is a heavy yeast smell that kind of smells like orange and tangerine citrus.

Tastes: actually has a good hop character that I did pick up in the nose, but there is a citrus Belgian yeast foundation that is quite unique.

Mouthfeel: this ale is highly carbonated and a pleasure to drink. the 9% has a bit of a presence, but it is crisp with the aftertaste.

Overall: I like this one as far as tastes but the smell kind of had a funky bitter orange that I didn't like to much. I love this ale otherwise and wish it was available in 12oz bottles.
