This American Belgian pours a luminous clear golden with thick white head that dissipates to thin white bubbles and light lacing. Smell of light fruit, apple, lemon, fresh bread, and sweet Belgian candy sugar. Taste is velvety smooth with tastes of crisp apple, lemon zest, Belgian yeast, a hint of clove, and loads of Belgian candy sugar. Warming and boozy up front and on the sides, sweetness on the aftertaste and throughout with a light white pepper coming through---not overpowering though. SOLID Belgian brewed in an American style. While the notes of this brew from the bottle are somewhat favorable I would challenge naysayers to try it on growler at cellar temperatures. I currently have this in the fridge in bottle form, but wanted to try it on growler before giving a review since I have had it before and loved the growler so much more for it's depth of character.
Serving type: growler

Purchased at one of the local quick marts.
A: Slightly cloudy golden with an extreme amount of head. (too much) Moderate retention.
S: TONS of bread. Yeast and bread. Underlying floral notes and alcohol. Outstanding.
T: Bread, malt and slight fruit. A bit alcoholic as well.
M: A moderate richness that sticks. Fair bit of carbonation and smooth. That said, It's disappointing somehow? Hard to describe.
O: Love the smell. The flavor is also good. The appearance and feel prevent it from being great unfortunately.
Serving type: bottle
