look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: nice golden body with a touch of haze and a pretty robust effervescence. Head poured a finger of frothy white foam which dissipates rather quickly leaving very little lace. Decent.
Smell: strong coriander and citrus aroma, rather like an imperial-strength witbier. I rather like it.
Taste: strong malt flavor with a good amount of that coriander present. There is a bit of a harshness to the flavor though, like the alcohol is too strong or the beer just not quite attenuated properly. It's OK, but I don't love it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a well-integrated carbonation and a wonderful mouthfeel. Easily the best part of this beer.
Overall: aside from the texture, this beer is a miss in my book; my least favorite by a brewery whose beers I normally love.
Serving type: bottle

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
