4.13/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy, burnt orange body with a very thin, subsequently short-lived, white head.
Smell: Pleasantly fragrant aroma smelling of alcohol-soaked peaches and apricots, candyish malts, silkweed honey, an underlying spicy coriander character and sweetly-scented honeysuckle.
Taste: Rich honeyed maltiness with a sweet, toothsome taste of confectioners' sugar. Pleasant kick of spices marked by a well-defined coriander taste. Toss in a splash of Kajsijevaca apricot brandy. Additional fruit flavors of peaches and white grapes. An incredibly light bitterness is all that remains of the hops at this point. The finish is warming with a lingering touch of sweet fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-high carbonation, which, thankfully, brings some appreciated levity to prevent any syrupiness.
Drinkability: As always, an outstanding job by the good people over at AleSmith. In fact, I don't recall ever having a brew from them that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
Serving type: bottle

This was deceptively strong.
It pours a clear golden color. There’s a light aroma with a bit of an estery aroma to it. I found it sweetly flavored with an orange blossom characteristic shining through. I had enjoyed it thoroughly, felt it afterwards!
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Blind Lady Alehouse on the 4th of July in San Diego.
Appearance: Excellent clarity in the amber body. Small but semi-durable white head. Head leaves some sticky streaks and spots on the glass.
Aroma: Sweet biscuits, yeast and faint tropical notes.
Flavor: Fruity, slightly tart, mildly bitter. Banana and clove evident, as is the higher ABV. Seemed to have a narrow tempeature range for optimal flavor and balance. Moderate complexity. Relatively good finish and aftertaste.
Feel: Light-medium body with medium+ carbonation. ABV mostly evident.
O: true Belgian style and quality.
Serving type: on-tap
