25.4 oz. bottle, corked and caged. Not available here in Wichita. Picked this up in Boulder, CO.

Appearance: This beer poured a cloudy golden-orange color which seemed to glow in the glass. The white head rose up to three fingers with an extremely careful pour. It settled at an average pace, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the top of the brew for the entire drink. The foam ramped sharply up the side of the glass, attesting to its stickiness. There were solid sheets of lace left behind.

Smell: A combination of sweet and sour on the nose. Pungent sour apples and grapes were present, but they didn't have an overly sharp, funky sourness that I was expecting. The sweetness was candy-like and thick. A nice dose of old wood lingered underneath, helping to add some complexity. Hints of hops were just detectable. Unfortunately, there was a rather strong metallic smell present, too. It detracted from, but did not ruin, the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Light- to medium-bodied and slightly coating. It was smooth upfront, picking up a crispness as it moved back into the mouth.

Taste: Rather typical Belgian pale. Sweet malts and apples emerged upfront to be quickly overpowered by bitter hops and dry alcohol. Wood and sweet vanilla rose up on the finish. The alcohol was pretty strong and lingered well into the aftertaste. I didn't find it overbearing, though; it was just about right.

A solid offering.
