I had this on tap at Union Jack's on the Manatawny. It came in a tulip glass.
Arrives a hazy gold with a 1-1/2 finger head of beautiful white foam. Carbonation appears pretty high. The head falls to islands and a ring, with pretty good lacing.
Aroma is spicy and fruity, with notes of pears, golden raisins, pepper and nutmeg. There is a light yeast smell, along with some of that Belgian funky shit going on! Smells good!
Flavor is malty sweet, slightly bready, with notes of pears, golden raisins, and spices like above. Residual sweetness is fairly high. Hop character is low. Aftertaste is sweet, spicy, warm, and slightly yeasty.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, pretty sweet, with medium carbonation. Finish is sweet and mellow.
This, to me, is your average sweet Belgian pale ale stuff. It's good, very tasty, good aroma, nice Belgian funkiness, pretty well balanced. Nothing over the top, but I'd drink it anytime.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
