Once again, a huge Thank You to Kurmaraja for this one! Poured into long stemmed-wine glass. Poured the expected, yet still gorgeous, honey-gold color frequent to the style. There was 1/8-ish inch of white head that quickly dissipated into a thin ring, which then had very good retention, but no lacing at all.

Malty sweetness hit the nose first, sticks around the longest, and is the dominant olfactory aspect. There is a noticeable yeast aroma, as expected, and this beer's scent reminded me more of a Tripel (not that there's a huge difference between the styles). On the tongue, the story was about the same. There was a slight bitterness at the very back of the palate, that was different, but not unpleasant. The yeast and malt were the major players on the flavor scale.

The body was, perhaps, a bit fuller and stickier than is typical, but not to a point of distraction. Drinkability was very good, as I find the style to be in general, but not so easy to drink that you would pound several. Overall, a very good take on the style, and one you should certainly try.

A - Pours a hazy golden color with nice carbonation and little to no head retention for a Belgian beer.

S - Belgian spice (coriander), sweet honey malt, yeasty, not much more.

T - Sweet Belgian candy sugar, light amount of coriander, alcohol, honey, some light citrus, and slightly phenolic.

M - Full medium body, gentle carbonation, gentle alcohol warming on the way down.

O - So-so. Was bottled April 7th so the spiciness has faded.
