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

750 ml bottle was poured into a large Duvel snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, spice, powdery yeast, Belgian candy, wheaty, bready, and pale malts.

Taste: You get a lot more of the bready notes and warming alcohol in the taste. Nice coriander and powdery yeast too.

Mouthfeel: Drinks light for a 10% beer. Refreshing, chewy, medium bodied, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: I like this beer a lot. Got better with time and warming up to room temperature too. I will revisit this one again sometime in the future.

VALUE - Reasonable.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very quaffable.
