A: Pours a nutritious-looking amber, with murky, cloudy depths that speak to the Belgian yeasts and bottle-conditioning. Left the sediment / yeast in the bottom of the bottle, as is proper for this type of style. Head froths up nicely, 2 or 3 fingers in my snifter. Looks promising.

S: Aromas of very light bubble gum and tutti fruti. The Belgian yeast is all over the nose on this one. No noticeable alcohol smell on this one, which is not surprising for a <6% ABV, but reassuring nonetheless, since that turns me off. If you look (ok, SNIFF) really hard, you'll find some faint florals from the hops, and some earthy-spicy notes.

T: Taste is a nice blend of Belgian yeast, grainy, bready-ness, and a lively mix of other guests in this particular party. Starts mildly sweet, finishes with a balance of light sweetness dancing back and forth with the bitterness from the hops. The Belgian yeast lingers on the palate. The bubble gum and tuti-fruiti flavors are there in the background. A nice balance between light to medium malts and subtle hops, rounded out by the distinctness of the yeast.

M: Very nice. Medium bodied and soft, with a velvety foam on top.

Overall, a great example of the style and one that I'd like to come back to and try again.
