look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from can into my Unibroue tulip.cloudy straw color with requisite thick airy head. Not much on the nose. Some light stone fruit, a bit of funk, but nothing sharp.
Taste is slow to develop. Seems bland at first, but that sharp hit comes later.

This is a good beer, but I'll take a Duvel or Matilda anyway.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz. can into a tulip glass

A - A hazy yellow body with a foamy white head.

S - Yeasty odors dominate the nose - I pick up coriander, clove, and lemongrass.

T - Fruity and spicy esters are the first things to hit the tastebuds. Pear, banana, allspice, and even a bit of bubblegum are in the mix. Then comes a Belgian sugar cookie sweetness. The finish is fairly dry with a touch of acrid lemongrass and clove.

M - A fairly glutinous mouthfeel accompanied by a foamy carbonation.

O - Worth picking up if you visit the Constitution State. Humerous artwork on the cans will entertain party guests, too.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: cloudy; golden colored; 1 finger white head that receded to a thin collar; nice Belgina lacing;

S: clove, black pepper, pear, perfume

T:follows the nose - a little more pepper and a little less clove; finish is moderately bitter and it's the clove that is there at the end;

M: medium bodied; effervescent;

O: smooth; hides the ABV pretty well;
