4.4/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearace: Cloudy honey apricot color with debris and a big fluffy, pillowy, white head.
Smell: Light fruits and citrus rind. Alcohol and some yeast.
Taste: Light on the palate other than the alcohol. Mild spices, some citrusy fruit and some light bread flavor.
Mouthfeel: Foams in the mouth like champagne.
Drinkability: To much of this and you're sure to be burping, but an excellent Belgian strong pale ale and very pleasant tasting.

Serving type: bottle

4.35/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Nice thick head on initial pour into a tulip glass , fine white foam with good lacing. Almost cream like in texture

S: Hint of hay, barn, champagne(?)

T: A tad malty without being too sweet, hint of peppercorn, clove, bread and only the slightest astringency from hops. Hint of apple or pear

M: Finely effervescent (like champagne) without being to gassy

Great beer, excellent price point at less than $3/bottle. Would definitely purchase again.
