Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A - Hazy pale amber with a white head and excellent lacing.
S - Belgian yeast, coriander, malty, spicy and floral with a slight fruitiness as it warms.
T - More bitterness than I was expecting. Crispy malts with a hard hitting spicy bite. Almost too bitter. The more I drink, the flavor becomes slightly medicinal and harsh. This harshness diminishes slightly as it warms but still intensely bitter and boozy.
M - Bubbly carbonation but still moderate bodied.
O - An interesting brew to say the least. I probably will not seek this beer again, nor could I drink more than one at a sitting. The flavor profile between the overly intense hops and the alcohol level was just too much. If those were toned down a bit, this would be a quality beer.
