Great! a very easy to drink Belgian for those that are entering this category and have been turned off by some of the really strong/sweet/challenging ones.

This has a really full hop presence if you look for it. Well, you don't have to look far for the bitterness, but the full hop taste is also really there, especially on the after taste and there is hop aroma there. It's probably quite hoppy but it seems to be so well balanced out by the Belgian yeast and by it being unfiltered.

A - Golden unfiltered greatness. White foamy head leaving some nice lacing.

S - Belgian like yeasty smell, slight yummy skunk and look for the really nice fresh Amarillo hop aroma.

T - Great upfront taste! Quite flavorful. A good amount of hop bitterness that is nicely balanced with a malty yeasty background. It may not be complex as other belgians, but for this style, it's bang on.

M - Really fresh and cleansing. Good carbonation.

Drinkability - Excellent, though it's 9%! It's so easy to drink and remains flavorful, it's pretty to finish the whole large bottle!

O - I'm buying this again. I'd really like to try this with food of that region.
