This beer tastes to me more like a Saison than anything else. Could be because of the spices, but it tastes more like a full bodied saison, with less yeast, and a well done version at that. A very well done beer. I am glad I picked this up.

Golden and syrupy, this beer melts in your mouth. It has a great texture to it, and the taste is amazing. It is a very rich beer, and has alot of flavor, but is also light an refreshing at the same time. Yeast factor is there, spices are kicking, but it is darker than a saison, which makes it awesome.

Gandhi Bot wowed me from this brewery, and this beer has done it again for me, very solid offering coming out of this brewery. Get your hands on some.

Thanks to Knifestyles for hooking this up for me.

This can is awesome. The design is sweet and hilarious. I think it is awesome they put a Belgian strong in a 16oz can. I poured about 7-8 oz's into my duvel tulip for the review. I wanted to keep the rest and drink it straight out of the can. Anyways, this golden, slightly hazy straw yellow with very rocky white head. The aroma is distinctly Belgian yeast with some citrus and alcohol. The taste is strong, and very good. It hints at a farmhouse-like funkiness but mainly from the yeast. Kinda spicy, peppery. This is a great beer. The alcohol is strong which makes the mouthfeel very dry. I loved the novelty of drinking a great Belgian strong ale directly out of a sweet can. Cool.
