4.58/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a cloudy and vibrant yellow with shades of orange. A massive, frothy white head takes forever to settle and leaves sheets of thick lace all the way down the glass.

S: Lemon, clean light maltiness, touch of vanilla, light clove and spice. Aroma is rich and chock-full of light fruit, spice, and sweet malt.

T&M: A very complex, yet tightly-constructed flavor profile. The malt used here is light, with sweet bready flavor. Belgian yeast contributes just a touch of spice, clove, and white pepper. The hops are the focal point, but their bitterness is subdued in favor of more hop flavor. There's a good amount of spiciness, floral notes, and light citrus (lemon, specifically). Light mineral notes are also appreciable closer to the finish, which is long and drying. Body is medium with an incredibly soft and bubbly carbonation that supremely enhances the drinking experience.

D: Highly quaffable for a beer of such ABV. Absolutely wonderful, truly a great beer.

Note: The draft version seems to me to be a bit more harsh, showing some alcoholic flavors. Moreover, the carbonation is less refined and mouthfeel isn't as good. This one is definitely superior in the bottle, though on draft it's still quite good.
