I mean wow. That was all I could choke out when I tasted it. I was like heaven. I loved it. it was so sweet yet it tasted like beer. I chose this beer as my 100th and it was an amazing choice. Samuel Adams you did it once again for me.

Overall well worth the money.

Excellent bottle!

A- Golden in color, mostly clear with a slight haze
S- Mild hoppy aroma with hint of fruit sweetness
T-Slight bitterness, though mostly sweet, this brew has a strong flavor of spices with notes of citrus fruit that brings an even balance to this uniquely complex beer with the basic characteristics you've come to know from Sam.
M-Medium body with a high carbonation
O-Crisp taste with a warming sensation that radiates in your chest (thanks to the 10% ABV) this is a transition beer perfect for February and bring you into the spring. Its spices are reminiscent of a winter warmer, yet its fruity flavor and crispness pull you out of hibernation readying you for a beautiful new spring. High drink-ability, however, it would be a shame to do anything other than sip and enjoy yet another delicious Sam creation.

A: This beer pours a nice golden amber, and head retention... Are you kidding me. This brew has a head that wont quit. Nice thick frothy white head. Good lacing.

S: Strong Belgian beer at work here. Pronounced banana and clove aromas amidst a bit of pear and apple. There's a mild fruity hop in the background, but the malt and yeast take the stage. Surprisingly there's little alcohol notes in the aroma. Some wheat malt fills in the gaps.

T: The Belgian flavors are evident but not overpowering. A bit of wheat and sweet fruit comes through. There's a bit of an acidic bite to this beer that adds to the sour-like spice tang. I detect a background note of the hops which seems to be of some noble hop, hallertau or fuggle. It's just enough to balance the big malt flavor.

M: Medium to full body beer with a medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel.

O: If you like Belgians, this is a beer you have to try. It's very multidimensional with a lot of layered flavors, but make no bones about it, it's a Belgian beer. I like the fruity sweetness that is well balanced with the right amount of bitterness.
