look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Tall, creamy, off-white head sits atop the hazy golden beer. Smells like spring flowers mixed with faint yeast. Smooth, light mouthfeel that is full enough to carry the rich flavors. Vanilla, orange peel, a bit of yeast spiciness. Something about it reminds me of Popperings Hommel beer, which is a great thing. This is one tasty beer, but watch out for the alcohol!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Perfect golden, thin head but thick lace, light but opaque, constant bubbles unfastened...

This smells of bananas, clove, sugar, wheat, and I don't know... subtle fruit hidden behind that elusive Belgian essence.

It tastes even better. Beyond the smells mentioned I'm feeling deep honey through and through.

The body is thicker than the opacity or hue convey. Smooth yet varied texture, mellowing out across the palate... it's velvet personified.

The thing about this beer is that the "overall" scores a 5 while the components do not. It adds up to something more complete and fulfilling than its components hint..

A - Poured from a bomber into a Chimay goblet. Pours a hazy golden with a nearly nonexistent white head.

S - Citrus, yeast, very subtle hops, another review mentioned banana, and that's definitely present.

T - Yeasty, very light malt, some subtle citrus, wheat, and spice. the dry finish is surprising and pleasant. Very well balanced.

M - Light carbonation, medium to thin bodied.

D - Delicious, subtle, strong.
